What is my username?

Student Usernames are created using the following formula:
Note:  usernames are all in lower case – No capital letters.

Formula for Student username

For example, the username for a student by the name of  John A. Student, born on July 04 would be:  studeja0704

If you do not have five letters in your last name the system will use your entire last name. If you do not have a middle name the system will skip adding your middle initial. For names that have spaces or punctuation the system will leave it out. E.g.: the last name O’Connor will be “oconn” in your username, and De La Hoya will be “delah”. . .

What is my initial Password?

Synchronized Password
Note:  Passwords are case sensitive.

All student passwords for MyNC, Office 365 Email, Aviso Engage, AdvisorTrac, Canvas, Ellucian Go, and My Password Services will be synchronized (and if changed, the password will change for all software applications simultaneously) and will consist of the following:

  • First two letters of your first name (capitalized)
  • Followed by the last four of your social security number
  • Followed by the first two letters of your last name (lower case).

For example:  The initial password for John A. Student with SSN ending in 8833 would be:  JO8833st

All passwords will need to be changed every 90 days

All students are required to login and enroll in Password Services, a web based self-service password management tool, and to change their passwords every 90 days. After enrolling by answering a few questions, you will receive an email notification when your password is ready to expire.
