How to sign up for a CCIS account
Last updated January 16, 2013
Requesting a CCIS account is a two-step process:
- Run the CCIS account program. Either:
- On any UNIX computer in the college, type account at both the login: and Password: prompts. Most of these computers can be found in room 102 West Village H. OR
- From outside CCIS, connect via SSH to login.ccs.neu.edu and log in as “account” with password “account”. If you don’t have access to an ssh client, you can connect to http://login.ccs.neu.edu/ with a Java-capable browser, and launch the ssh client java applet hosted there.
You will be asked for your real name, requested account name, password, and other information. Answer all the questions correctly. NOTE: If you do not run the account program, we can not create your account.
- Fill out the CCIS Account Request Form, copies of which can be found:
- Outside 310 WVH. AND
- Online at http://www.ccs.neu.edu/help/account-form.txt
And submit it back to the CCIS Systems group either:
- Physically: To the mail slot outside of 310WVH or to the College’s mailing address, Attention: Systems Group. OR
- Electronically: Via email (scan & attach both sides of your signed form) to email@example.com or via fax to the College office, Attention: Systems Group.
If you do not submit an account request form, or if your account request form is not signed in pen, your account request will not be processed.
Note: If you send us your account request form by fax, US Mail, or any other remote submission technique other than email, it’s probably a good idea to also send us email letting us know to keep an eye open for your form, as sometimes fax and snail mail can take a little while to get to us. If you submit your form to the mail slot outside our offices (310WVH) or via email, there’s no need to let us know, as both of those delivery methods come to us directly & immediately.
Once you have completed the above process, please allow two business days for us to process your request.
