STEP 2: Account Approval by System Administrator.

Upon successful registration, the system administrator will receive a notification and complete your account approval by assigning you correct PI and account type. You will be notified by e-mail when your account is approved.

STEP 3: Request Access to Services.

After your account is approved, you will be able to log in and start browsing through different calendars in the system. A new user logged in the system will not have access to any services and must manually request access by clicking the "Request Access" button displayed in the center of the screen.
