Departments wishing to join the University of Minnesota Active Directory should fill out the Active Directory Application and send it to us at umnad@umn.edu.

Before your department can join Active Directory, you'll need to review, sign and submit the Active Directory Organizational Unit Administrator Agreement Form.

The University participates in a Microsoft Campus Agreement which grants access to all institutional computers and users throughout the subscription term. An additional External Connector grant is provided as part of the agreement. More details are found here.
