Class Resource Activation

MyEngineering has the form for requesting additional SEASnet resources for your class, such as TA accounts, access to restricted software, and temporary disk space. In order to ensure compliance, restricted software must be specifically requested by the instructor or TA of the class for coursework. Software may also be restricted because it has been purchased by a specific academic department for use with only their classes. SEASnet reserves the right to deny access to any software we manage.

Notes on software:

  • MATLAB is not restricted and does not need to be requested.

Notes on TA accounts:

  • Access will be removed the Sunday after finals (requests for extensions may or may not be able to be accommodated).
  • The TA accounts are reused and assigned to a different TA each quarter, so files stored in any TA accounts are not guaranteed to be retained. If you need to reuse any files in your TA account, you must save them elsewhere before the end of finals week.

To activate additional class resources:

  1. Log in to
  2. At the “Home” tab, find the box labeled “Instructor of” or “TA of” in the left area.
  3. Click on “Additional resources: request form” for the class you want to request additional resources.  (You can also click on the class link, then within the class site, click “Resource Activation” in the “Class Admin Tools” block.)
  4. Fill out the form as needed:
    • At the minimum (if you click ‘submit’ without filling out anything), you get a TA account for each instructor/TA(s).
    • Note: only the Instructor/TA(s) listed on this form will be given a TA account. For the TA(s) not listed, this form must be re-submitted after they are listed (officially hired).
  5. Once you are done filling out the form, click on “Submit” and you request will be sent to SEASnet to process.
  6. You will receive an email when your request has been completed.
    • Note: restricted software will be available to your students only after we have completed your request.
