County Support Staff NetID

County employees that support Extension administratively or programmatically need a UW-Madison NetID. This will grant them access to UW-Madison O365 email & calendar, G Suite, and will include them on Extension's county support staff and All Extension email lists.


  • Extension and Wisconsin's 72 counties are partners in implementing local programs across the state.
  • Some county employees (non-Extension employees) are involved in Extension programming/administrative work.
  • These county employees need to be able to collaborate with Extension employees using IT applications and services
  • To have access to these tools, they will need UW-Madison NetIDs.
  • They can obtain a UW-Madison NetID through the creation of a zero-dollar appointment record in HRS.
