What is My RIC User ID?

Your network account consists of two parts, a username (User ID) and password.

Your username is constructed by taking your first initial followed by your last name, followed by an underscore "_" and the last four digits of your student ID. For example, if your name is Joe E. Doe and your student ID is 1234567, your username will be jdoe_1234. In the unlikely event that your username is not unique, your username will include an alphabetic character, e.g. jdoe_1234a.
