eZ-Audit Registration Instructions
This document provides instructions for school registration to eZ-Audit.Â These instructions explain how to gain access to the eZ-Audit system through the creation of an eZ-Audit Institution Administrator for your school.Â In order to access eZ-Audit, you must follow the registration process outlined below.Â
What is an eZ-Audit Institution Administrator?
Each school should select an eZ-Audit Institution Administrator who will be responsible for managing your schoolâ€™s access to the eZ-Audit website.Â This individual will receive your schoolâ€™s user name and password necessary for access, and will be responsible for granting access to additional users that you name.Â Â
Who should be my Institution Administrator?
The selection of the Institution Administrator is at the schoolâ€™s discretion.Â This person could be the same person you currently have designated to submit your paper audit.Â For state schools submitting consolidated audits the administrator could be your state auditor or designee.
How do I register an eZ-Audit Institution Administrator for my school?
For security purposes, you must submit a registration request letter to the Department of Education.
To register, please mail a letter on your schoolâ€™s letterhead that includes the following:
- First and Last Name of appropriate person in authority (e.g. President/CEO/Chancellor)
