GuestID Terms and Conditions

Guests of the university who are issued GuestIDs are required to agree to an acceptable-use policy. Cornell employees who administer GuestIDs are required to do so in accordance with university policy.

This article applies to: GuestIDs

On This Page


An acceptable-use policy will be displayed to a guest under these two situations:

  • A guest is registering for a GuestID using the single GuestID self-registration method. The guest must acknowledge reading and agreeing to the acceptable use policy prior to submitting the registration form.
  • A guest has been issued a GuestID that has been registered and activated by either the single GuestID registration by NetID method or the multiple GuestID registrations by NetID method, and the GuestID is being used for the first time.

All users of CornellAD, of which GuestID is a part, are bound by University IT policy. For more information, visit the University IT Policies site.
