Student Employee Affiliation in LDAP

ITS is creating a new affiliation in LDAP.

When CoreCT went live last year, student employment data was integrated into the identity system with the existing Special Payroll designation.  Unfortunately, this meant that student employees could not be readily differentiated from staff members, and in some situations, they were granted incorrect entitlements.  After exploring options with our stakeholders, we have elected to create a new Student Employee affiliation in the ID system that will include graduate assistants, graduate student professional interns, and students employed at UConn in work study or student labor funded jobs.  This new affiliation will be available starting Wednesday, December 6.  ITS will proactively communicate with LDAP service account owners over the next several weeks to recommend appropriate updates to their applications.
