Accounts Creation Rules

Enter the account name you prefer up to 15 characters. This will be used for network and Banner access as well as for your email address. Granting of requested account name is based on availability, format, and technical restrictions. Please do not enter “”.

Account Names will generally be assigned according to the following format if the name is available: First initial followed by last name or First name followed by last initial. Accounts will not be named with only the first or last name of an individual.

If you do not provide an account name, one will be assigned to you. Once your account name has been assigned, it cannot be changed.

Individual account names will reflect the actual name of the individual, though common shorted versions are allowed (i.e. Bob for Robert, Debbie for Deborah, etc). Departmental names (email aliases) will reflect the name and/or function of the department. Generic names may not be used. For example, would not be an appropriate selection.
