New Fall 2008 Applicant, Open University, and Extended Learning Students:

New applicants, Open University, and Extended Learning students are emailed a User ID and password from Admissions and Recruitment. While using this User ID, your password is the first two letters of your first name, the first two letters of your last name (all the letters are capitalized) and the last four digits of your User ID.

For example: Joana Doe, who has a student number/User ID of 000012345 would use 000071234 as her User ID, and JODO1234 as her password.
