Summer 2024 Research Program Administration

Find out about criteria and establishing campus affiliate access for approved summer research programs for Summer 2024.

Program Criteria

Summer Research Programs are required to review and take action as applicable per the information below.

Criteria for Access

  • Involves undergraduates, most of whom are from campuses other than UC San Diego
  • The program participants focus on doing research in faculty labs; there are usually some group activities and perhaps some modules or short-courses
  • Program must be registered with the 2024 Summer Program Inventory Process

Establishing AD Identity for Research Programs

Summer research participants must be set up in advance of their arrival with AD accounts, and Campus ID Cards in order to access campus systems and services. This process may take up to two weeks to complete, thus it is critical that program coordinators begin this process well in advance of their participant cohort’s arrival. 

1. Review, sign, and return the MOU - please note required documentation.

Groups hiring their participants as Short Term Exceptions can stop here. AD Account and Campus Card Creation should be handled through your deparmental HR processes

2. AD Account Creation*

  • Fill out this downloadable Excel form to initiate the creation of AD accounts, Campus Cards for your participant cohorts. Groups hiring their participants as Short Term Exceptions can obtain AD accounts and campus cards through their departmental HR represenative(s).
  • If you have incoming or continuing UCSD students participating in your program, please mark "UCSD Incoming" OR "UCSD Continuing" in Column A as appropriate to avoid duplicate account creation.
  • Submit your completed list to Mariana Beltran at Student Financial Solutions for PID creation - Please make the email subject: “Program Name_2024_Account Creation”
    • SFS will then route your submission to ITS via a helpdesk ticket. The individual who submits the original list to SFS will be assigned as the helpdesk ticket owner and will receive relevant updates directly.

Tips on filling out the form:

  • Red fields are required.
  • White fields aren't required but are nice to have, e.g. mobile phone.
  • Green fields are system-generated.
  • ID Card Number: Research participants will not be given an ISIS PID. The ID Card Number will serve in lieu of the PID for research participants.
  • ID Card Affiliate Classification: Choose “Visiting Scholar”.
  • ID Card Project COA and ID Card Task COA: Enter the appropriate chartstring project and task numbers for the cost of the Affiliate ID cards. Pending confirmation: Summer 2024 card costs are $25.

Sharing Credentials

IT Services will provide participant credentials direclty to the coordinating staff member(s) so students can create a new password, and activate their two-step login. Please share corresponding usernames and temporary passwords with each participant directly (i.e. please don't send a spreadsheet to all participants) and provide the following instructions: Setting Up Your AD Credentials


3. ID Card Photos*

While you wait for your participant’s credentials to be processed, each research program coordinator should provide a photo for each participant for their ID card. You can do this in 2 ways:

  • Email the photos Mariana Beltran and copy Pa Chia Vue .

Photo tips: 

  • Plain, white background
  • Even lighting
  • Color photo 
  • No hats or sunglasses
  • No one else in photo
  • .jpeg or .png file type

*Research Programs hiring their participants as Short Term Exceptions do not need to complete the AD account and Campus Card creation process outlined here. This should be completed by your departmental HR representative. All other items noted within the MOU apply.

Questions regarding these requirements can be directed to Summer Planning in the Office of Educational Innovation.
