To request an account, a representative from the student fund account should complete the Organizational Account Application. A link for this form can be found here: http://sabo.rutgers.edu/services/setting-up-a-webpage/requesting-an-organizational-account
This application should be returned to:
Rutgers University Student Activities Business Office

OIT will give the requester and additional account members access to the account.
To use a student organizational account, students must have valid individual accounts on the EDEN system. After the account for your organization has been created, all authorized persons can access it from their personal eden accounts.
These accounts are available by request to all Rutgers student organizations and other approved College and University groups with a Student Activities Business Account
All changes for any users must be requested from the Primary Account holder's EDEN account to firstname.lastname@example.org. The request should include the name of the Organizational Account and the names and eden email addresses of up to 4 people who can have access to the account.
Users can e-mail email@example.com for issues with their eden account, or contact the Help Desk (732-445-HELP)
