Online Access Request System (OARS)

Online Access Request System (OARS) is a tool for requesting and authorizing access to administrative data in ITS-managed systems and applications. It is also used to remove access when an employee no longer has a business need for that access—such as when an employee changes roles or transfers to another unit.

These systems include:

U-M faculty or staff members can obtain access to the university's administrative data resources that pertain to the type of data and level of access they need to conduct university business. Your role controls what you can see and do within OARS.

  • Unit Liaisons can obtain access-related information for all users in their unit, and can initiate and authorize access requests.

  • Individuals can view only their own information. They can initiate access requests for themselves and others, but cannot authorize requests.
