Accounts

Faculty and Staff Accounts

A network account is required for faculty and staff to access their shared network applications and personal network storage space.

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, departmentchair@uca.edu would not be an appropriate selection.
For more information visit the Account Creation Rules page.

Student Accounts

All registered students at UCA have a network account setup automatically. There is no need to request your account.

Note that soon after the beginning of each semester the network accounts for students no longer enrolled are deleted. If you have changed your student ID or your name since your account was first created, your account will be deleted even though you may still be enrolled.

To use your account you will need to know your account name and your password.
