All persons using GACRC resources must meet the requirements described on the GACRC Policies page.

GACRC user accounts are managed as part of a "computing lab" group which is registered by a UGA principal investigator (PI) i.e. faculty member.  Users are typically post-docs and graduate students working under the direction of the PI.  The account creation process is twofold:

Computing Lab Registration

A UGA faculty member may request a computing lab with us by providing the following information on our Lab Registration Form:

    Your Name
    Email Address (primary account where GACRC's notifications will be sent)
    Phone Number
    Your MyID
    Department Name
    Department Number (3-digit)
    Please let us know if you need a user account yourself e.g., "user account = No"

By applying for a group account, the Principal Investigator is agreeing that all users will abide by the UGA Policies on the Use of Computers.

User Accounts

The PI of a computing lab must request user accounts for members of his/her computing lab.  Please use our User Accounts Form and provide the following information:
