CAE Account Types and Their Renewal
This document shows what it takes to keep a CAE account active.
For most people, the CAE account will just continue to be valid as long as they meet our eligibility requirements. Student, faculty, and staff accounts are validated automatically using campus databases. Students must have an engineering major or be enrolled in an engineering course in order to qualify for an account. Faculty and staff must have an appointment within the College of Engineering (zero percent appointments count) to qualify for an account.
We do have some special account types that require periodic validation for them to continue. The main reason we do the periodic account validation is to find out if the account is still needed. All other account types require some sort of active validation, usually once or twice a year. Notifications of this are sent via email.
The following table shows the various account types, and how the validation can be done. Some accounts can "self validate" by just logging in to the "My Account" page on the CAE Website. Others require that the "link id" owner of the account use the "My Account" page to validate the account. If an account is marked where it can't be self validated or the owner validated, then it must go through a CAE staff person to be marked valid.
Please note: Not all account types are in use, and some are getting phased out.
