How do I apply for an OpenAthens account?
Emeritus: Many Emeritus faculty are able to keep their existing Upstate credentials, and will not need an OpenAthens account. However, if an Emeritus faculty is NOT keeping their Upstate credentials, they must complete an Emeritus Faculty OpenAthens Access Request Form - PDF Form.
