There are two types of Student Worker Accounts: WR (password is restricted) and WU (password is unrestricted). For WR accounts, the password is sent to the supervisor who is responsible for logging on to the system since the student never receives the password. For WU accounts, the password is sent to the student, but usually the student has less functionality/security because ACCESS.SMU is available through the World Wide Web. To request a Student Worker Account, the supervisor needs to fill out the Student Worker Account Request form located at http://help.smu.edu/ .
