Campus Active Directory - Requesting an Organizational Unit (OU)

This document outlines the process of requesting an Organizational Unit (OU) in Campus Active Directory.

We have established this request process in order to provide a more secure and efficient Active Directory service.
The entire process may take 7 - 14 business days to complete the process.  The reason for the longer processing period is the requirement by Campus Security to vet with your department director or dean that you are authorized to have access and administer their Organizational Unit (OU).
