Your network account will allow you to utilize a campus computer in any of the computer labs, libraries or classrooms. It will also allow you to connect your own computer wirelessly to the Internet anywhere on campus or through a wired connection in your dorm room. The account consists of a username and password and will also be used to access your Carroll email, Moodle and MyCarroll. Once you have registered as a student, an account will be created for you. You will be able to retain this account as long as you are continually enrolled at Carroll College. As a new student at Carroll College, you should receive a letter with your account information prior to the start of classes. If you have any questions concerning your Carroll network account, please contact CCIT @ (406)447-4357 or stop by our offices in 113 O'Connell Hall.
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., email@example.com. To access your Carroll email, go to the Carroll Student webpage, click on the Carroll E-mail Icon and then sign on using your username and password.
A temporary password will be set for the account but you will be asked to change it the first time you login. It is very important that you do not share your password with anyone else. CCIT does not have access to your password but can reset the password if necessary. 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 that are prohibited. You will be held responsible for all activity that takes place using your assigned account.
