Courtesy Appointments

Courtesy appointments are required for individuals associated with, but not employed by, University of Missouri Extension and who need access to Outlook, share drives, business portal and web applications.  County office Support Staff (i.e., secretaries, bookkeepers, etc.), some Volunteers, VISTA members, etc. are part of this group.  The Courtesy Appointment Portal (CARREQ) was created to obtain the information needed to process these appointments. 

Only individuals with a University pawprint and password may access the Courtesy Appointment Portal.  The new associate’s supervisor (or designee) should enter the required information. 

Because of the time involved in establishing a Courtesy Appointment (including obtaining the requested computer access), we strongly recommend the supervisors enter the data as soon as possible.  If possible, the information should be entered prior to the individual’s actual start date.

Supervisors will access the CARREQ portal at and select Request CAR to begin the process for new associates.  When the connect screen appears, type the domain name (um-users) with your pawprint, then your password.  For instance, Bert Jones might enter:

User Name:        um-users\jonesb
Password:           bj*130*bbc&43
