Self-service access to ConnectCarolina is granted automatically based on an individual’s role as student, faculty, or staff (or any combination of these).

Administrative access to ConnectCarolina is requested and approved by an individual's manager, entered into the Access Request System by the school or division's Access Request Coordinator, approved by the responsible data steward, and granted by the ConnectCarolina Security team after the individual has completed the following:

  • Terms of Use agreement
  • FERPA training for all student and human resources data
  • HIPAA training for some functions, and
  • application-specific training

Details on how to acquire access can be found on the ConnectCarolina user information website: https://ccinfo.unc.edu/start-here/access/.

After a student’s Onyen expires, he or she can create a guest ID as an alumnus or alumna to access "Student Center Self Service.” Students’ Onyens expire 180 days after their affiliation with the University ends.

Staff members’ Onyens expire immediately after their affiliation ends, and faculty members’ Onyens expire 60 days after their affiliation ends.

The link for registering for a guest ID is https://itsapps.unc.edu/account/register/alumni. Links for creating and managing guest IDs are also available in ConnectCarolina at connectcarolina.unc.edu.
