How Do I Access My Computer Account?

Your initial login credentials (username and password) are the same for all accounts.  Your username/login will stay the same throughout your time at CU.  It only changes if you submit an official name change that changes your initials.

Your initial password is the same for all of your accounts.  However, you must change your domain account password every 120 days.  This will affect AggieAccess, Student E-mail, On Campus Computer access, Off Campus Library Database access, Wi-fi and ADA login.  Please note that your Blackboard account is NOT included in this requirement.  CU uses a Single Sign On (SSO) mechanism for all accounts other than Blackboard.  Therefore, changing your domain password is as simple as logging into AggiePass at https://aggiepass.cameron.edu.

What Is My Username Account?

Your username (login name) will consist of first initial of first name, first initial of last name and last six digits of student ID number.  Your username will stay the same throughout your time at CU, unless you submit an official name change that changes your initials.

Your initial password will be constructed using the lower case first letter of first name. lower case first letter  of last name and the last 5 digits of the social security number and upper case middle initial.  If you do not have a middle initial, please add the upper case letter G.

For example:
John S. Compute, Student ID # 000123456, SSN # 123-45-6789

Username/Login:  jc123456
Password:  jc56789S

What is my Email Address?

Typically, your e-mail address is going to be firstname.lastname@cameron.edu.  However, sometimes students have the same name and that e-mail address is already taken.  Subsequent e-mail address have digits added to them in order to have different e-mail addresses.  There are two places that you can see if your address has a digit at the end.

Computer Use Policy

Access to modern information technology is essential to the pursuit and achievement of excellence across the Cameron University (CU) mission of instruction, research and academic advancement. The privilege of using computing systems and software, as well as internal and external data networks, is important to all members of the CU community. The preservation of that privilege for the full community requires that each individual student, faculty member, staff member, and administrator comply with institutional and external standards for appropriate use.

Music Download - Peer to Peer Policy

Peer to Peer (P2P) is given the lowest priority and is also heavily limited.  This means there will be extremely slow downloads and problems connecting with other peers; however, the P2P traffic is not “Educational” by its very nature and is considered to be almost entirely illegal.  P2P is an incredible consumer of bandwidth, and no matter how much bandwidth is available, it would never be enough.  In the past, P2P traffic (Bit Torrent, Morpheus, Kaaza, Napster, Gnutella, AudioGalaxy, etc.) consumed such quantities of bandwidth that the legitimate educational uses of not only the residential network, but also the total Cameron University network suffered.

Regarding the legality of P2P traffic, if Cameron University receives any violations from the RIAA (Recording Industry Association of America), MPA (Motion Picture Association), or any other industries, those violations will be investigated, and all documentation will be turned over to Student Housing / Student Affairs.  

Student Email Accounts

Cameron University students have access to a university provided e-mail account.  The account will be removed from the system one year after graduation or withdrawal from Cameron University.

 

Student e-mail is web-based and can be accessed through AggieAccess.

 

To maintain the privilege of using computing systems and software, as well as internal and external data networks, students must abide by the Computer Use Policy, which provides guidelines and standards for appropriate use.
