User Accounts Explained
- SHIP.EDU account (AA999@ship.edu): This is your main user account provided by the University. It is used to access resources available to ALL students on campus. These include: D2L, Banner, Email, Zoom, Microsoft Office and access to computer labs OUTSIDE of the School of Engineering.
- ENGR Domain Account: (AA999@engr.ship.edu): This is the account which would be used to use the computers in the School of Engineering labs. This is also used to access resources such as the servers Sloop and Clipper. You will have received an email with a link to a personalized welcome page prior to the start of your course or your first semester declared in one of the School of Engineering programs. You will rarely need to use the full domain when accessing resources, meaning you will rarely use the @engr.ship.edu. At this time, MFA is not required when using this account.
- ENGR Gmail Account: (AA999@engr.ship.edu): This is a sponsored GMail account which uses our domain as part of the email address. Older accounts would be CS.SHIP.EDU instead of the current ENGR.SHIP.EDU. Specific information pertaining to this account can be found at FAQ #3-6 on the Frequently Asked Questions page found at: https://web.engr.ship.edu/for-
students/faq/. As of the Fall of 2022, MFA is required to utilize this resource.
Please understand, each of these accounts is a separate, unique account and changing the password on one has no impact on the others. You will be allowed to keep your AD account as long as you are actively enrolled in a School of Engineering program or course. If you change your major, or finish an SoE Gen Ed course, both accounts will be disabled. When you graduate,your AD account will be disabled, but your Google account will remain active. Due to recent Google program changes, we only allow you to keep your sponsored Gmail account if you graduate with a School of Engineering degree and as long as you are actively using it. Users who drop out or who graduate with a non-SoE degree will no longer be allowed to keep their account. In addition, the School of Engineering does reserve the right to close any sponsored Gmail accounts at any time.
All usage of School of Engineering resources must be in compliance with all School of Engineering policies and the University’s usage policies as outlined in the Swataney. Access to the resources provided by the School of Engineering is a privilege which can be revoked. Inappropriate use, depending on its severity, may result in any of the following: loss of privileges, suspension, expulsion, and/or criminal charges.
