External Affiliate NetID

An “External Affiliate NetID” process is available for non-MUSC research staff (i.e. community partners, off-campus staff) who for study purposes require an MUSC NetID to access the eIRB, CITI Training, REDCap, and/or SPARCRequest systems. This is a 2-step process that MUST be completed by an MUSC employee acting as the sponsor. A non-MUSC researcher cannot submit a request for themselves.

  1. Submit a SPARCRequest for an External Affiliate NetID.
  2. Submit each affiliate’s information via the REDCap link.

Once received, NetIDs are typically issued within 3 business days at no cost to the investigator. To request an Extension or to Terminate an existing External Affiliate NetID, access the REDCap link.

Please Note: If the affiliate requires an MUSC email address or access to other MUSC systems, investigators should contact MUSC Human Resources to obtain a traditionally sponsored MUSC NetID with all privileges. Additionally, study monitor access is facilitated through Epic Research.

If you are an External Affiliate that requires a password reset, you may call 843-792-9700 and follow the prompts for NetID management for assistance.
