Joule and Student Email Accounts


  • All students will use the same usernames and passwords as their LoLA logins.
    (Format: firstnamelastname + maybe a number).
  • As with LoLA, some usernames may have a number after the name.
    • Username examples: melodybryerson or karenmiller7
  • When you change your password in LoLA, your password will change in Joule automatically.

If you cannot log in with your LoLA password, notify help@sowela.edu immediately with your name, user name and student ID number.

STUDENT EMAIL (powered by Google™)

  • New students will use the SAME usernames and temporary passwords as with their LoLA logins.
  • Returning students will retain their current usernames and passwords.
  • If these students can’t remember their usernames, their advisors can look up email addresses listed for them in the student information system (Banner).
  • IT Department personnel can reset email passwords. (help@sowela.edu or Rm 330 of the Electro-Mechanical Bldg.).
    Students needing resets should have their Student ID cards on hand.
