The current plan forecasts a go-live date of April 1, 2019 to coincide with the launch of the university's HR/Payroll project.

Identity lookup functionality will be provided through the OIM Console.  Instructions will be provided prior to go-live.

Administrative accounts will need to be migrated into OIM as new identities (new USC IDs). 

The new email addresses will be issued in the following format:

<USC Network Username>@<University Email Domain>

  • <USC Network Username> - the Network Username will be system generated using the legal first, middle, and last name. 

  • <University Email Domain> - The email domain will be automatically assigned based on the type of relationship the individual has with the university (student, employee or affiliate) and what campus they are associated with.

The following table outlines the email domains that will be assigned to individuals that are introduced to the USC system after project go-live.

Types Campus Assigned

As long as these accounts have a uscEduStatus = 1,2, or 3, they will not be disabled but will age out on their expiration date.

Guest accounts will need to be migrated to Affiliate accounts by February 1, 2019.  To perform the HR Affiliate process, go to the HR Toolbox website. (scroll down the page under "Hiring" to find "Affiliate Appointment")
