Computer Accounts 

Computer accounts are generated with the class lists 1 day before the start of the classes for the Fall or Winter term and the information will be provided to your instructor for the start of classes.  If you have registered in a course after the start of the term, you will need to contact the ACS Network Administrator  to have an account created for you.  

Each undergraduate student is allotted 1GB of space on the ACS network servers for documents related to ACS courses.  It is the student’s responsibility to maintain this space, additional space will not be granted except for exceptional circumstances or enrolled in the ACS project course (ACS-4901). 

The accounts will be renewed automatically each time a new class is taken and will be valid for 6 months from the beginning of a course.  Accounts will automatically expire at the end of the 6 months and will be purged from the ACS network after 1 year of inactivity.
