New username format coming for new accounts

January 28th, 2013 by Jo-Ann

PSU ITS, working in collaboration with our sister institutions (GSC, KSC & UNH) has adopted a new username format that you will start seeing in the near future.  The purpose is to make it possible to have a single username/password combination that is good for any of the institutions that you have an account at.

The new username formula is based on full name, an institution identifier (PSU = a number 1) and a set of digits. For convenience, a friendly email alias will be generated using the old username convention.

For example:

 Bart J. Simpson might get a username like “bjs1234″ and an E-Mail alias like “bjsimpson”

Please be aware that this change is only going to occur with any newly generated accounts or when someone requests a username change.

If you have questions, please contact the Help Desk at x52929 or via email at helpdesk@plymouth.edu
