 Student Username and Initial Password 



Your SRU Username:

Students enrolled after Fall '03
You have been assigned a username consisting of your three initials and four randomly assigned digits (i.e. abc1234).  This username is printed on the front of your student ID card.

Students enrolled prior to Fall ’03
You were assigned a username that consisted of your three initials and the last four digits of your social security number (i.e. abc1234).  For security reasons you have been provided with an alias that should be used to access the various SRU systems.  This alias consists of the first letter of your first and middle names, the first three letters of your last name, and two randomly assigned digits (e.g. wtkir12).

Usernames are all lowercase and an "x" is inserted when a student's middle name was not provided (e.g. John Smith has a username of jxs1234). You can look up your assigned username in the SRU online directories
