To use any RCC resources or to sponsor others who use them, you must first register for an RCC user account.
RCC accounts are different than FSUID accounts. You will need both to access RCC systems. Browse the information below for details about the different types of RCC accounts available and helpful links for managing your account and troubleshooting account issues.
Types of Accounts
Currently employed FSU faculty members may create an RCC user account. No approval is required.
Faculty may delegate the ability to manage RCC accounts to an FSU student or staff member by submitting a support request.
Sponsored delegates are not subject to annual verification and will remain delegates until:
- The faculty sponsor requests demotion from delegate to sponsored affiliation
- The faculty sponsor leaves FSU
- The delegate leaves FSU
Contact the RCC if you would like to enable a student or staff member in your research group to sponsor other users.
Students and Staff
FSU students and staff members may create an RCC user account if they are sponsored by a current FSU faculty member. Simply select a faculty sponsor during account activation. The faculty sponsor will be notified and must explicitly approve the request.
Outside collaborators not affiliated with FSU may create an RCC user account if they are sponsored by a current FSU faculty member. First, an FSU faculty member will need to register you as a sponsored guest. Once approved, you will receive an email with instructions on how to set up a guest FSUID and password. Then proceed to set up your RCC user account and select your faculty sponsor during account activation.
The RCC uses POSIX groups to manage shared resources. Groups connect users to system resources, such as HPC scheduler accounts and storage volumes.
All users are automatically enrolled in the General Access group (genacc). This group provides access to all free-tier resources available on the RCC system.
