Why do I need a campus computer systems account?
Gain Access to Important Services
To access many electronic services at SUNY Plattsburgh, you need an account. An account is a means by which computer systems identify users and provide appropriate access.
To be able to identify individual users, each user is assigned a unique NetID. To ensure that a user's information is confidential or that only authorized users have access to such services, each NetID is in turn assigned a password. This password will initially be assigned an encrypted non-readable default value, this has been done to provide extra security.
New users must set a password before attemping to login to systems using the NetID/password combination. We recommend you change your password at least every six months. Changing your passwords frequently is a good way to keep your account and information secure.
