Microsoft 365 for Student Workers and New Hires
How to Order
Some departments in Student Life & Leadership require Microsoft 365 accounts for student workers or new hires who do not yet have M365 accounts. Most new professional staff automatically get M365 accounts created; however, contract employees from the Temporary Services pool will often need M365 accounts ordered manually.
Usually for students, these accounts are needed for Teams communications but may also include providing access to OneDrive cloud storage, staff calendars and scheduling, or MS Office applications.
Optionally, enter a descriptive comment such as "Teams account for student worker (department name)".
Save the REQ numbers for each request and promptly send to Patrick Tsuchihashi for follow-up. If you have more than 1 to do, please try to do them in batches.
Recommended Follow-up for Student Workers
Once your student worker has access to the account, we recommend setting up email forwarding so that if any email comes into the account, it will be forwarded to the student's Google account. This is necessary because Outlook favors/prefers other M365 accounts so if a UCI staff member sends email to the student, the auto-complete will use the student's M365 address by default. If forwarding is not set, the student will probably never see the message.
- Click gear icon near upper right for settings
- Click "View all Outlook Settings"
- Click "Forwarding"
- Click "Enable forwarding" and enter your UCI email address
Any email coming in directly to the M365 account will auto-forward to the given UCI email address.
