We all have traditional students and employees – those that have gone through our standard admissions and hiring processes and are confidently established in our identity management systems. But what about employees that are not paid by the university or applicants that have been offered employment but have not fully completed the hiring process?

Come see some of the solutions we put in place to handle “external identities”.
