Hi Laurie,

I think NYU is doing something similar. 

This approach might be relevant: https://2016.wpcampus.org/schedule/lightning-talks/extending-wp-signup-page-form-higher-ed-use-case/ <https://2016.wpcampus.org/schedule/lightning-talks/extending-wp-signup-page-form-higher-ed-use-case/> 

The slides and recording are posted.

Our goal is to limit who can create a site while still allowing the user to connect to the wp-signup.php form for automated site registration. We've configured our system so that users who have a university email address will be able to log into the system, and once logged in, create sites. However, our campus policy limits who on the campus can get a WordPress site in our network.
