This document details the eligibility policy for the UW-Madison NetID.
It is important to be aware of the difference between NetID Eligibility and Service Eligibility:
NetID Eligibility refers to whether or not a person is eligible to have an active NetID. NetID Eligibility does not imply eligibility for any other UW Madison services.
Service Eligibility refers to whether or not a person is eligible to access a particular Enterprise UW Madison service, such as Office365, Learn@UW, Google Apps, or the UW Wireless Network. Service Eligibility is determined by campus policy for each Enterprise UW Madison Service.
This document only discusses NetID Eligibility.
Note: Students studying/working abroad are considered former students when no longer enrolled at UW Madison.
Note: Eligibility for Dane County employees is determined by the primary and secondary office address in the HR System.
Note: Student employees enrolled at UW-Madison are eligible due to their student status.
Departments at UW-Madison may request to extend some or all Enterprise UW-Madison IT services, including a NetID, to affiliated persons or groups. Eligibility may be revoked at any time at the department's discretion. Examples of affiliated persons or groups include guest lecturers or speakers, consultants, and students in special programs.
