If you plan on using a campus computer in any of the computer labs, libraries or classrooms, or if you want to access network resources from your computer in your dorm room, you will need a network login account - a username and password. This will also provide a Carroll e-mail account for you to use while you are a student at Carroll. Once you have registered as a student, we will create an account for you. To activate your student account, pick up your account information at the CCIT table in Guad during Freshman Orientation or go to the CCIT office in O'Connell Hall, Room 113.
Generally, your username will be your first initial and your last name. For example, if your name was Jane Smith, your username would be jsmith. Your e-mail address will be your username, followed by @carroll.edu - i.e., firstname.lastname@example.org. To access your Carroll email, go to the Carroll Student webpage, click on the Carroll E-mail Icon and then sign on.
You will also be given a password which you will be asked to change immediately. It is very important that you keep this password to yourself. Even CCIT won't have access to your password. You will be asked to change your password on a periodic basis to maintain it's security.
Please be sure that you have read Carroll's Acceptable Use Policy before logging on to the network and understand what type of activities are prohibited. You will be held responsible for everything that takes place on the network with your username and password.
