Identity and Access Management

Notice: If you are looking for resources on HyFlex teaching, please visit our Teach HyFlex Page

Below is an overview of identity and access management at NDSU.


The Identity and Access Management (IAM) tool provides self-service capabilities to NDSU faculty and staff who are responsible for managing departmental and cross-departmental access to certain IT services, including group access to departmental workstation computers. 

Using IAM, service managers may have the ability to view, add and/or remove other people's access to those services. The benefits of using IAM include: 

  • Secure self-service 
  • Make changes anytime, anywhere (with Internet access) 
  • Faster turnaround time 
  • Able to self-audit access list regularly to ensure it is up-to-date

Data Security

Access Management may be used to store or transfer public, private, or restricted data, as defined by North Dakota University System Data Classification Standards. NDSU faculty and staff are responsible for protecting private and restricted data, including data subject to export control regulations, FERPA, PCI and other pertinent state and federal laws and industry regulations. Contact the NDSU information security office if you have questions or concerns at
