(Format: firstnamelastname + maybe a number).
- As with LoLA, some usernames may have a number after the name.
- Username examples: melodybryerson or karenmiller7

Student Email (powered by Google®)
- New students will use the SAME usernames and temporary passwords as their LoLA logins (see the IT Help Guide for Student Accounts).
- Returning students will retain their current usernames and passwords.
- If these students cannot 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 (firstname.lastname@example.org or Rm 330 of the Electro-Mechanical Building). Students appearing in person needing resets should have their Student ID cards on hand. If requesting help via email@example.com, students need to supply their full name, birth date, and student ID number.
