Elevated Privilege (Administrative Rights) Request

Administrative Authority (Admin Rights) for your computer is reserved to cases where hardware or software required for your position requires it.  A desire to do software updates for yourself or for convenience is generally not sufficient.  Alternatively, you should use our remote assistance option (Bomgar) available at 

https://it.education.tamu.edu/remote-assistance

If you do require Admin Rights, it requires that you take full responsibility for keeping your computer(s) in compliance with all A&M and state information technology policies and procedures.  As such it is important that you understand these policies before approval is granted.  IT Security policy and procedures are available at

https://itsecuritycenter.tamu.edu/

If approved, you will be required to submit an annual IT Risk Assessment with the university.  Failure to complete this annual report may result in the removal of admin rights.

 

Notes

  • Students will not be granted admin rights.  However, their supervisor can request it and provide the needed access to the student under the same requirements above.
