To begin using the above resources, each user must activate his or her account by changing the default password to a new strong & secure password. CC&N staff may assist students in person with password changes, a student can change passwords on first use of a RioNET computer, or by following an online activation process. This online method is quick and may be done via the Internet using a web browser. Please follow the following steps.
Step 1 – Know your RioNET Account:
All Rio Grande students, faculty & Staff are provided a RioNET account which provides login and authentication services for networked services. Student usernames are the letter “S” followed by the Student ID#.
Step 2 – Login & Change your RioNET Password:
Default account passwords are based on the last four digits of the Social Security Number. Passwords expire on first use and MUST be changed to a secure password for further use. Campus computer connected to RioNET will prompt for this password change. Rio Grande users remote to campus are directed to the RioNET WebMAIL site (http://mail.rio.edu) which includes the RioNET Password Portal (https://password.rio.edu). Password strength will be strictly enforced as a security measure and a deterrent to identity theft!
Step 3 – Login to RioNET E-Mail – Use LIVE@edu:
Rio Grande students use Microsoft Outlook Live for e-mail. Student e-mail addresses will be the letter S followed by your student ID then @students.rio.edu ex (S300123456@students.rio.edu) – Links for e-mail login are available at http://mail.rio.edu or directly from Microsoft at http://login.live.com.
Don’t forget to activate your password first – either by logging in on RioNET or via the Password Portal off the RioNET WebMAIL web page.
