Identity Management - Students

We have identified the need to streamline usernames across all ICT systems used in the college. Therefore, usernames of all students with old usernames will be updated to follow one standard pattern. i.e. - 'firstname.lastname'  and there will be no change to the current passwords.


Why is it changing?

Having a standard identity will:

  • Enable effective access to numerous systems for dynamic user base
  • Control and secure access to all users’ devices and existing/future applications
  • Keep identities secure and reduce help-desk calls

Who will be affected?

Please refer to list of students here

When is my username updated?

If you're in the above list, you will be notified prior to the change either via SEQTA  or by the classroom teacher.


What happens when the username is updated? and what's changed?

First thing you'll notice while in the college is that you'll be disconnected from Wi-Fi.  It's important to understand that your new username will need to be entered as 'firstname.lastname'  (e.g. John.Doe) while accessing following key services/functions:
