You or your ellucian contact (typically the project or engagement manager) will need to submit a Client Access Request.  Upon submission of this form, you will be sent an email with instructions to create your Hub account.  Please note this email should not be forwarded to others as the links are customized for you and will not work for others.
If you don't receive this email within a few minutes, please check your spam/junk mail folders and settings.  Once you have completed the steps, your account is typically setup with 10 minutes.  However, this can take up to 5 business days.

Q: How can I tell if a user has already registered in order to give them access to their collaboration site?
A: You can go to this list to view clients that have registered: There are several different views you can use to find the client. Once you see them here, you can then add them to the appropriate SharePoint group to access their collaboration site.
Q: How can I see what sites the client has access to use?

You can leverage this url to see the sites your client would see by adding a parameter with the client’s email address on to the end of the url as follows: Just add the client’s email address after the equals sign (=), and you will see the sites they have access to use.

Q: What happens if I do all the steps above, but my client still cannot access their collaboration site?
A: At this point, you will need to enter a help desk ticket to have the Web Engineering team look into the issue.
