Network Registration student renewals start Jan 2nd

Returning students looking to get online when spring semester opens can get a head start on January 2nd when OIT starts accepting network registration renewals for spring.

Once [students] log into the tool, it's just a matter of clicking the 're-register' button for each device they want to renew.Student devices, including laptops, tablets, smart phones, game consoles, and anything else that is capable of connecting to the university's wired or wireless networks, must be registered once a semester. Fall student device registrations will expire on January 2, 2013. Faculty and staff device registrations are valid for one year and will not need to be renewed for spring.

According to Rick Manderick, OIT Director of Infrastructure, the re-registration process will be a simple one. "Students will receive an email on January 2nd with instructions on how to access the Web Registration Tool. Once they log into the tool, it's just a matter of clicking the 're-register' button for each device they want to renew."  

The university currently has approximately 80,000 registered devices on its network, 60,000 of which belong to students.

"We would like to see the majority of those devices get re-registered before their owners return for spring," Manderick said.

Students who do not renew their registrations before they arrive for spring semester will still be able to do so after arriving; however, the process will be simpler if done in advance.
