Network Accounts

A network account is required for faculty, staff, and students to access their shared network applications and personal network storage space. All employees and enrolled students at UCA have a network account setup automatically; there is no need to request your account.

If you have changed your name with the Registrar’s office and have gotten a new student ID card, please come to the IST Help Desk Burdick 101 to receive a new account name.

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