Full-time faculty, staff, and enrolled students may be granted access to specific content areas within the NYU website, provided they are affiliated with and receive permission from the unit responsible for editing said content. All CMS account applications are submitted by an authorized content approver and sent to DigiComm for final approval; if an applicant does not meet the eligibility criteria, the application will be rejected.
If you are unsure of your eligibility, please contact the CMS Training Team.
All Non-NYU affiliates (e.g., consultants) must have their CMS accounts sponsored by the full-time faculty or staff member who is the main content approver for that specific content area. The affiliate must first be assigned an NYU NetID as per the instructions on the NetID Assignment page.
Authorized content approvers submitting CMS account applications on behalf of student employees are directly responsible for any content they create or modify while in the CMS. Students are not eligible for CMS approver accounts; their supervisor is expected to review any work prior to publishing on their behalf. The CMS Training Team must be informed as soon as a student's employment with a particular unit has ended.
When new users are given access to the CMS, they are placed in a particular Group that gives them access to a specific section of content. For example, if someone from NYU IT were to receive an account, they would be placed in the CMS group which grants them access to the section of pages that falls under the URL:
They would not be able to edit pages that fall under a different URL path, such as Academics or Admissions.
Users in the CMS are granted access as either a CMS Approver or Author, depending on their account application and eligibility.
All new CMS content authors are required to complete required accessibility training. This training, created in partnership with the NYU Digital Accessibility Program, is available online through NYU Classes. New content authors will receive an email invitation to complete this training prior to receiving access.
Authorized content approvers may apply on behalf of a new CMS user by visiting the CMS Account Application page.
You must have the following information available to fill out the form:
Note: You cannot apply for an account for yourself; coordinate with your unit's content approver to request access. All new content authors must also complete required accessibility training and will receive specific directions as part of their onboarding.
