Definition of eRaider for Everyone


eRaider for Everyone is a system which was devised to allow eRaider accounts to be authorized for individuals on a temporary basis who are not active students, faculty members, or staff members. eRaider for Everyone accounts generate usernames differently than normal student, faculty, and staff accounts.

For most students, faculty, and staff, eRaider account authorization is automated based on data received daily from authoritative sources, such as Banner HR and Banner Student records. For other individuals, accounts must be authorized manually.
