Advance Notice of computer login change

In a continuing effort to consolidate login identifications and passwords, the Office of Information Technology will convert Windows Active Directory accounts for UAF and Statewide (the account used to log into your workstation) to the UA Username and password.

This change will happen the third week of April and YOU will be in charge of your own conversion. That means you will be able to pick the time of day that's right for you to make the change.

What is your Windows Active Directory username and password?
This is how you login to your Windows-based computer workstation.

How do you know if this affects you?
When you login to your workstation do you select UAF or SW as your domain?  If so, you will be affected. The domain selection pull-down menu is located on the login screen just under Username and Password.

How will it work?
During the first full week of April, you will receive an email with step-by-step details and a link to the OIT Username Converter. It will only take a few minutes for you to convert your old username to the UA Username for Windows Active Directory.

What is the UA Username and password?
This is the same login you already use for Google Apps @ UA, BlackBoard and MyUA.

What should you do now?
Nothing, there is no action to take at the moment. This is advance notice of the change slated for the third week of April.

Look for more information to come in the next week.
