What Are Sponsored Accounts?

Sponsored accounts (formerly known as "guest” or “NET code” accounts) give Washburn credentials (username and password) to people who work or volunteer at Washburn, but who are not paid by Washburn, so they can access general computing services like email, Microsoft 365, D2L, Banner, etc. People in these roles might be contractors, vendors, consultants, visiting scholars, etc.
