The Social Science Computing Cooperative carries out an annual account exercise to keep our account list up to date. To renew your account, you should receive an email with a customized link that you will use to renew your account. Accounts that are not renewed will be closed on June 1, 2023.
If you have graduated or otherwise left UW-Madison, do not renew your account.
The renewal process is slightly different this year: you no longer need to sign in to renew your account. However, to update any information about it, you will need to sign in and be on VPN, Winstat, or a computer on the wired network in the Sewell Social Sciences Building. You may want to do that before starting the renewal process.
The account renewal process has two purposes:
First, to identify accounts that are no longer needed.
Second, to identify the sponsors of each account (i.e., who pays for it). You’ll have the opportunity to update which of our member agencies you are affiliated with. You’ll also indicate how much of your SSCC computing is associated with each agency. This is one of several inputs that determines each agency’s fair share of the Cooperative’s budget.
If you have left UW-Madison but are still collaborating on a project here, renew your account. However, your collaborator should speak with the administrative staff in the agency that sponsors your account about continuing to sponsor it. Note that these decisions are made by our member agencies, not SSCC staff.
