  3. How does new ACC faculty and staff get a ACC email address?

    Email accounts for employees and staff are created once the HR 'on-boarding' process is complete.

    This typically occurs 3-5 days after the employee’s start date. Once the employee data has been replicated across the servers, the account is created automatically.

    This insures that the account is created with the correct employee information. Accounts created with the wrong information will cause a significant delay in the employee’s access to Email, E-time, and online services.

    Contacting HR will not speed up the process. You should contact the helpdesk at 223-4357, three days after your orientation or on your 4th day of work to see if your account has been created.

  5. How do I have ACC property moved, reallocated, or surplused?

    To have ACC property moved, reallocated, or surplused, please follow the instructions on the “Property Management – Move” form located on the Web at this Website.

    Surplused computers are sent back to Dell for recycling. They are not available for employee purchase. Most computer manufacturer websites have discount prices for Faculty and Staff.

    For Dell computers, go to www.dell.com click on the link titled: “Government, Education, Healthcare & Life Sciences” and proceed from there to select “Faculty and Staff Personal Purchases”.

  13. My ACC email has been deactivated, why?

    According to policy, you must be an active ACC employee to have and use an ACC email account.

    If you are an hourly or work study employee, your pay assignment has ended and your email account has been de-activated. Please contact your supervisor about creating a new Personnel Authorization if you are actively working at ACC.

    If you are an adjunct professor, your email account has been deactivated because you have not taught at ACC for over 1 year. Once you are assigned to teach a class at ACC, your email will be re-activated.

    If you are Full Time Faculty or Staff, you pay assignment has ended and your email account has been de-activated. If you are actively working at ACC, please contact your supervisor about getting your active assignment entered into the system. Once that happens, your email account will be re-activated.
