We know that you are excited to begin exploring all of the different technology resources that Carlow students use on a daily basis. By using the list below as a checklist you will get acquainted with the essential technology tools you will need to be successful at Carlow.
Before Accessing Carlow's Technology
The first thing that you need to do is to change your temporary password to keep your confidential information secure while providing access to the information and resources you need. If you forget your password, Carlow provides an easy and secure way to reset your own password with password recovery. We highly recommend you do both of these steps before accessing any other technology resources.
Resources Available On Or Off-Campus
After you have changed your temporary password and enrolled in Password Recovery (see above), you will have access to other essential resources. If there is a special format for your username which you need to log in, it will be indicated below. Otherwise, simply use your Carlow username and password.
Email | Set up and Log in Instructions [pdf]

There are a few steps you must take to set up your email account. As all email communications from Carlow to current students must go to the student’s Carlow email account, this is essential. You should check your Carlow email frequently so that you stay connected with your faculty and fellow students.
