Requesting Access to Identity Data

Procedure to Request Access

Campus service providers often require identity data for users of their service. As a convenience, a service provider can request this data from the Texas A&M Identity Services, using the following procedure.

Prerequisites

It is assumed that you:

  • have an application- or service-specific need for information about students, faculty, or staff
  • will use the data only for official Texas A&M University administrative or academic purposes, and
  • your use is consistent with the Texas A&M Identity Services Appropriate Use Policy.

Request Form

The request process begins with the service provider completing the request form:

Request form options
To request data releases via Shibboleth, web services, or periodic data feeds: To request a one-time data extract:

If the service provider is a non-campus entity, the service provider should have a campus sponsor fill out the form. Contacts for the request should be Texas A&M University System employees.

All information on the form should be typed except the signatures. (The pdf form has a button at the top which will highlight the available fields.) If you are uncertain about how to answer a question, please email idm-support@tamu.edu for assistance. A help page is also available.

Submitting the Request

The form is printed, signed by the requester and mailed to the Identity Management Office, MS 3374, faxed to 979.845.6090 or emailed to idm-support@tamu.edu.

Processing the Request

Upon receipt, IT personnel will notify the submitter that the request has been received and review the request. If FERPA protected or private information is being requested, the form will be forwarded to the appropriate data custodians for approval.

Processing of the request typically takes two to four weeks.

If you have any questions about the identity data or the request process, send an email to idm-support@tamu.edu.
