For faculty and staff needing additional access their supervisor must submit the proper forms to the IMT Support Desk.

Help for Service
All support requests should be directed to departmental Data Analysts. Data Analysts provide the first level of support to their individual departments.
If the issue cannot be resolved by a departmental Data Analyst, it will be escalated to IMT via a work ticket issued by the IMT Support Desk. The Support Desk can be contacted via phone at (626) 815-6000 x5050 or by sending a message to support.apu.edu. Additional points of escalation exist, within IMT and the issue will be addressed as needed.
Customers are responsible for working with their designated Data Analysts, some of which are officially titled Data Analysts, while others serve in the role while working in a different job description. The Data Analysts provide a central point of knowledge management within the department, and are responsible for escalating issues they cannot resolve through the IMT Support Desk.
