TAF (Temporary Affiliate Form)

A service of IET

TAF is a process created to grant external constituents (visiting faculty, concurrent students, vendors, and others) access to UC Davis computer resources. By registering for temporary access, the affiliates have access to the UC Davis network, a ucdavis.edu email address, and a unique user name and password which will be used to verify identity and enable subsequent access privileges to various parts of the network.


  • Provides a UC Davis Kerberos account used for campus single sign-on and a UC Davis email address for UC Davis-external users who need to access UC Davis computing resources.
  • Any UC Davis Faculty or Staff member may sponsor a person for a TAF account, subject to approval by identified departmental approvers.  
  • TAF access can be enabled for a period of up to 365 days and may be renewed by the sponsor.
Get Started: 

Go to TAF online to register.
