Anyone know when we have to accept/decline the loans?
Does anyone know if we can change our SIS password? Mine is a bunch of odd characters that is going to be annoying to remember.
Andddd... does anyone know how to change our email alias or whatever? Like instead of J2k@virginia.edu we could change it to firstname.lastname@example.org or something? I like that better
Sorry I'm not very computer savvy. Thanks!
1. You cannot change your email. You can create a second email (an alias), that is easier to read: like john.smith. BUT this will not replace your other email address, and aliases are @email.virginia.edu, not @virginia.edu. To be honest, I don't really know anybody that uses an alias. There's more info here: http://its.virginia.edu/email/ams/about.html
2. For your SIS password, did they assign you a random one? I can't remember if they did or not. My guess would be to look in the upper right hand corner of SIS where it says "retrieve or replace password." But I will say that SIS has some pretty stupid password requirements, like uppercase/lowercase, numbers, and a symbol of some sort. Not even getting into why those type or requirements don't even help prevent hacking, it's a pain and I'm not even sure it can be the same password as LawWeb.
