Positional accounts are SacLink accounts for use by part-time student workers. These accounts allow program centers and colleges to create ‘permanent’ accounts for a specific positions. Advantages of this account type is that it allows a department to publish a constant email address and establish an account authorization (file share, access to applications) that does not need to be changed when the position is vacated. When a student employee leaves a position, the campus sponsor changes the password. The password is changed again with the arrival of a new student employee. The new student has access to all the old email history, file shares and applications that they require to perform their duties. Positional accounts have a name format of: <org>-<descriptor>.
These accounts must be requested by an active Faculty or Staff. These accounts must be reviewed annually for appropriate use.
