Online Student Key Renewal Information

Students are issued keys on a one academic term basis.  In order to renew student keys, a current and completed Key/Code Issue Authorization Form from the department must be on file prior to setting up Online Student Key Renewal access.  We ask that these forms be updated at the beginning of every fiscal year or whenever a change of staffing occurs that impacts who authorizes keys for your department.  Authorizing staff will need a valid campus email address and valid CoyoteID.  Please check the 'Online Renewals' box on the Key/Code Issue Authorization From to indicate that an employee should be provided access to the online program.  Once your request has been processed, you will be emailed a password.  The online submission will trigger an email to the Facilities Management Front Office staff to check the renewal database.  We will compare the submitted information to the data in our database.  If there are no discrepancies, we will approve the request. If there are discrepancies, or if we have questions, we may place the status as 'denied' with an explanation.  The system will automatically email this reply.  You are welcome and encouraged to download our

instruction booklet

 that explains in detail how the process works.



In order to receive clearance from Facilities Management, the key holder must return all keys and electronic access credentials to Facilities Management.  Inquires regarding issued keys or electronic access credentials may be requested via email to  Facilities Management will check the key database to confirm if the clearing individual has any outstanding keys and reply to the requestor.  For security reasons, all clearance forms and any outstanding keys and/or electronic access credentials are required to be submitted to Facilities Management in order to obtain a Facilities Management clearance stamp.  If a position is going to be renewed, the department may send  a new completed and signed Key Request Card with the Clearance form. This will allow Facilities Management to clear the individual as a past employee and issue them keys and/or electronic access credentials as a new employee. The employee will not be cleared until new Key Request Cards are received and/or a replacement fee is paid for each outstanding key and/or electronic access credential. See 'Lost or Stolen Keys' for more information.
