UACCM network accounts are generally available three to four weeks before the first day of classes. This would be the mid-July for the Fall semester, and mid-December for the Spring semester.
Student username follows this pattern: first initial + middle initial + last name + last 3 digits of Student ID number. For students who do not have a middle name, the letter “X” will be substituted.
Usernames will not contain any special characters and are limited to 20 characters in length. If a two-part name exceeds 20 characters, only the second part of the name will be used. For example, aemclaughlinwilliams789 would be shortened to aewilliams789.
Passwords for current students will be the same as at the end of the previous semester until prompted to update to a new password.
Passwords for incoming and re-enrolled students who have sat out one or more semesters will be set to the following default value: first initial + middle initial + last initial + ID + hashtag + full Student ID number. For example: aewID#123006789
At first login, students will receive a prompt to change their password to one of their own choosing. Newly created passwords must follow these rules:
- At least 15 characters long
- At least one capital letter – and – one lowercase letter
- At least one number
- At least one special character such as #$%^&?><+
- May not contain the word UACCM, any part of your name, or your Student ID number
