eID Privileges
Personnel specialists who have granted temporary access privileges to potential or temporary employees who have not eventually been hired or are only hired on a short term basis, remember to remove their access by signing into K-State’s eID page, select “(enter)” under “Administrative Functions: Grant privileges to a preliminary employee.” Anyone listed under “Existing Preliminary Employee Grants”, who should not have access to our systems, will need to have access privileges removed by selecting “(delete)” by the names of those individuals. If you have questions, please contact the K-State IT Help Desk at (785) 532-7722. Instructions for deleting privileges may be found at: http://www.ksu.edu/hr/hrisuser.htm
