New Login Procedure for Students in 2012/13

After a successful pilot program in 2011/12, all students will be provided with Google Apps for Education accounts in 2012/13. In order to provide greater privacy and security for students, all old student Google accounts have been moved to a new area. Starting August 28, 2012 students will not be able to access their old accounts. All students have been assigned new usernames and passwords. 

Students logging in for the first time: please review the login information in this announcement.

New email address:

Initial default passwords: Initial default passwords for students will be based on the following formula: bmmddyyyy. For example, if your birthday is October 6, 1995 the password is b10061995. Students who change their account  password and then forget their login information can request a reset through the Assistance Request Form

Usernames: Usernames will follow the same naming convention as in the old accounts and will be a combination of your Year of Graduation (YOG) and your name.

  Example  Description Name, YOG Username
 1 simple first/last Jane Doe, 2013 13jane.doe
 2 double last, no hyphen Jane Doe Smith, 2013 13jane.doesmith
 3 double last, hyphenated  Jane Doe-Smith, 2013 13jane.doe-smith
 4 apostrophe in last name Jane O'Doe, 2013 13jane.odoe
 5 apostrophe in first name L'Jane Doe, 2013 13ljane.doe
 6 period in name Jane St. Doe, 2013 13jane.stdoe

Transferring Data From Old Accounts: Documents, Mail, Sites, etc. can still be retrieved from old accounts by an account administrator. Students who wish to transfer documents, mail, etc. from their old accounts to their new accounts must request assistance through the Assistance Request Form. If you do not wish to save any items from your old account it will be closed completely.
