ARS Employees

ARS employees can request a SCINet account by filling out a form on the ARS Sharepoint site (eAuthentication required). Anyone with a usda.gov email address working for ARS should use this link to the ARS Employees form.

Note: if you have a usda.gov email address but can’t access the ARS Employees form (e.g. if you are a summer intern), then your sponsor at ARS will need to complete the non-ARS Employee form.
