Student Technology Accounts (Email, Computer Lab, Blackboard)

IMPORTANT NOTE: Computer accounts are not to be shared with other users; when evidence of account sharing is found, all parties involved will be considered to be in violation of this policy. Please review Article 223: ECSU Policy on Computer Use

All Eastern students have a Technology account automatically generated upon registration. This account is used for Computer Labs, Email, Blackboard, and other online services, though not all online services. Your username must be typed completely in lowercase and passwords must be typed in whatever case is appropriate.

IMPORTANT NOTE: New and transfer students MUST log on to either a University-owned computer or their Eastern email accounts (from on or off-campus) before attempting to log on to Blackboard.

Alumni Accounts

After graduating, your account will be converted to Alumni status and granted only a Microsoft 365 mailbox license. This means that your OneDrive and other application access will be removed once your degree is awarded. The degree evaluation/awarding process is handled by the Office of the Registrar and takes place 1-2 months after your final grades have been submitted.

If you’d like to know more about your transition to Alumni status, you can reach the Office of the Registrar at
