Oxford SSO credentials are emailed to students in advance of their arrival in Oxford. The student's account will be created automatically and the details emailed to them as soon as they have been Final C'd . Final C is the University process which confirms that the student has satisfied all conditions and has returned the signed Univeristy Contract agreeing to abide by the University's Rules. It is also the trigger for the University Card to be created. Account creation will no longer be batched. Because they have signed their University Contract, they will be fully provisioned at that time - with their SSO account, email address, and with a status that will entitle them to all the privileges of that status. This process runs automatically the whole year, so covers Trinity and Hilary starters as well.
