    NOTE: Profiles should only be created for faculty/staff. Student employees do not qualify for a profile. If you do not have permissions to add a new profile, contact the Help Desk to request a new profile be created.
  4. Enter a First Name.
    NOTE: It is recommended to use the full name instead of a shortened name (e.g. Thomas instead of Tom). Nicknames or shortened names can be added in the Content tab.
