How do I get authorization to use SAGE, and how long will it take?

Ask your department's or dean's administrator to authorize the appropriate SAGE role(s) for you in ASTRA. Dean's level and department level administrators determine who has access to the system and who is allowed to approve applications for their unit. If you try to log in to SAGE without an authorized role, SAGE will display a list of your authorizers.

For more information on who needs which role, see SAGE Access and Roles.

ASTRA authorizations generally take effect almost immediately, unless the user is already logged into SAGE with a different role. If you log out or SAGE and then log back in again, the new authorizations will take effect.

Note: If you experience any difficulties accessing the system after authorization in ASTRA, contact
