Employees who need to interact with the Ellucian Colleague system, either directly via the Colleague user interface or though various reporting tools supplied by Administrative Information Systems, require a Colleague account.
For security purposes, your Colleage account is a completely separate account from your Amherst account. In many cases the username will be the same, but unless you synchronize the passwords manually (NOT recommended), your Colleage account will never have the same password as your Amherst account.
Colleague accounts are made available to employees whose positions require access to Colleague either using the UI or via a database query.
Access to Colleague is controlled by Department Security Managers in administrative offices. To submit a request for access to Colleague, you must complete the Colleague Security Request Form.
