If the employee is employed or has concluded an agreement to perform work at more than one CU faculty or department, they will have a separate card issued at each of the faculties/departments.

Each employee can have only one card with the ITIC license at any given period. Only academic and teaching staff with a minimum FTE of 0.3 and /or an employment agreement for a fixed term of at least twelve months are eligible to get a card with the ITIC license.

Each employee can have only one card with the ALIVE license, provided the employee doesn’t already have a card with the ITIC license (this applies even if the validity of the ITIC license marked on the card has expired). This card can be issued to CU employees who are not eligible to receive a card with the ITIC license based on their employment relationship to a CU faculty or department.

Exceptions may be made via a directive of a faculty dean or a department director for very specific use in cases in which the cards are needed to ensure operation and in which cooperation with the CU Computer Science Center does not result in another feasible solution. Deans and directors can issue a directive stating that the use of certain services provided by the faculty or department is subject to the use of a previously issued employee card.
