New! Student workers who need UAConnect accounts no longer need to get a DSV/DCC account. You may now request a UAConnect account for your student workers who need to interact with staff calendars or send on behalf of staff email by logging in at


  • Account must be requested through UITS
  • The account will require the purchase of a license. Although this cost will not be charged to the department, it will be absorbed by the University.
  • As a way to manage the licensing costs, the account will expire after one year. If you wish to keep the account active, it must be renewed annually.

How to Obtain a DCC Account

DCC accounts are created by an offically designated UA college or department 'sponsor'.  These individuals are approved as sponsors by the Access Provisioning Liaison for their department and by an Authorizing Agent of the University. As sponsors, they are granted the ability to generate DCC records for individuals.

How to Become a DCC Sponsor

Your department must request the appropriate UAccess Employee role(s) for you.  There can be several roles associated with the DCC creation and approval process, depending on how your department is organized. Requests for access can be submitted in the UAccess Application Access Provisioning tool.
