What is MyRIC ID?

Your MyRIC ID consists of two parts, a MyRIC ID username 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_4567. In the unlikely event that your username is not unique, your username will include an alphabetic character, e.g. jdoe_4567​a.

To begin using your RIC account (or to regain access to RIC email, Blackboard, and MyRIC), you will need to set an initial password. Set a new password by visiting How To Reset Your Password Using Password Station (link to TDX)
