Amazon Web Services, Requesting an Account

How to request an Amazon Web Services account webservices

To sign up for an Amazon Web Services (AWS) account, click the "Request an AWS Account" link at The form requires some information before an account can be provisioned:

  • Account Owner Email: Who owns the account?
  • IT Support Email: Who can create Active Directory accounts on behalf of the account owner?
  • Business Contact Email: Who manages the CFOP that will pay for the account?
We recommend using distribution lists for these contact addresses so they're not tied to a single individual. You may also list multiple email addresses for any of the contacts.

We also require a University of Illinois CFOP which can pay for your usage.
