Access Requests

New User Access

General access to Galaxy is automatically assigned to a new user when they receive a UT Dallas NetID. During the user’s first login, access is assigned to appropriate Gemini and/or Orion modules, depending on what type of user they are: Employee, Applicant, Faculty, and Student.

PeopleSoft Access Request

Some users require special access to perform their jobs. In order to obtain this specialized access, follow the steps below. Also, in some cases, additional training is required. For information about training, visit the PeopleSoft Training Group.
