To use the Student Hourly Appointment (SHA) application you must have a Kerberos user ID. This is usually the same as your email user ID. However, some MIT departments, labs, and centers have email systems that do not use the Kerberos protocol. If you work in one of these areas, you may need to get a Kerberos user ID to access the SHA transactions.
All MIT staff are eligible to receive Kerberos user IDs. Contact Athena User Accounts:
