Obtaining iRIS Access for Non-UofL Project Participants

Users can access iRIS using a University sponsored account (i.e., a specially-requested account ending in @louisville.edu that is assigned to individuals not employed with the University of Louisville but have university-related business or obligations.)

Sponsored accounts are available for individuals that are not employed by the University of Louisville but have a valid business or academic relationship that requires the account(s) and/or access. Some valid reasons for sponsoring an account are:

  • Visiting academic groups

  • Temporary or visiting instructors if no other process for provisioning is currently in place

  • Third party doing administrative or academic business for or with a university entity needing technical access

  • Accounts can only be requested by a Unit Business Manager / or the designated Tier I for the unit and approved by a VP or Dean, Dept. Chair (academic), supervisor (administrative) or designee. The account request must include the specific purpose (business or academic) of the sponsorship and the access restricted to only information and resources required for the specified purpose.

To get a University sponsored account, your sponsoring department must request the account on your behalf. The sponsoring department can request a sponsored account via the Identity Access Management Portal.  

NOTE: You must have either a guest account or a sponsored account to access iRIS. Your sponsored account must be approved and created before you can log in to iRIS as a sponsored account.
