Request access through OIM.
OIM is CU's access request and management system.
We have provided a document that will help users determine which roles to request in OIM.
Once you've completed training:
OIM will check that you have completed the required training for your requested role. If you have not completed the required training, you'll receive an email listing outstanding courses you must complete. Then, log back in to the system and self-approve your request so it routes to your manager/sponsor for approval.
