Email and Passwords

 

For Faculty and Staff

Carthage Usernames, Email Addresses, and Passwords

USERNAMES

Your Carthage username and password are used to access most online resources at Carthage. Email accounts and usernames are automatically created when students are accepted to Carthage. This information is communicated to students via their Academic Adviser. The adviser also clears students to register for classes by updating their status in the Carthage systems. If you are unable to complete a stage of the registration process/check-in process for beginning classes, or returning to school, or if you think you should have an email address but you don’t, please contact your Academic Adviser first.

Carthage usernames are usually constructed using one’s first initial and last name. For example, the username for Jane Doe would be jdoe. If a username is already taken, you may have a number after your name, e.g. jdoe3.

EMAIL ACCOUNTS

Your Carthage email address consists of your Carthage username followed by “@carthage.edu.” Carthage uses Google for its email service. Interacting with Carthage email is essentially identical to interacting with Gmail, Google’s public email service.

PASSWORDS

Your Carthage email password is initially set to your initials followed by your student ID number. (For a student named Jane Doe with an ID number of 12345, the initial password would be jd12345.) It may be changed via the Carthage Password Manager. Whenever you change your Carthage password via the password manager, your password will also change for your Carthage Gmail account.

Changing Your Carthage Password

Passwords expire every 120 days. You will be notified via email when your password is about to expire. When you receive this notice change your password via the Carthage Password Manager before it expires. This will change your Carthage network password which is used for My Carthage, the Carthage directory, remote access to library databases, and your Carthage Google Apps (email, calendar, drive) account.

  • Open a browser and navigate to the Carthage Password Manager (https://password.carthage.edu).
  • Log in using your current Carthage user ID and password.
  • Click the “Change Password” button at the top of the list.
  • You will need to select a password that meets the requirements stated at the top of the page.
  • Enter the new chosen password in the boxes lower on the page.
  • Click the “Change Password” button below the boxes.
  • You should get a confirmation that your password was successfully changed.

Resetting an Expired or Forgotten Password

You can reset your own Carthage password at any time using the steps below.

Before your password expires:

  • Open a browser and navigate to the Carthage Password Manager (https://password.carthage.edu).
  • Choose “Setup Password Responses.”
  • Choose security questions from the drop-down menu. Password responses provide an alternative way for you to prove your identity, enabling you to reset a forgotten or expired password.

After your password expires, or you forget it:

  • Go to the Carthage Password Manager (https://password.carthage.edu) and choose “Forgotten Password.” You do not need to log in.
  • You will be asked one of your security questions. Be sure to answer it exactly as you set it up.
  • You will then be prompted to create a new password.

If you have trouble with your username or password, contact the Hedberg Library Information Desk at 262-551-5950 or help@carthage.edu.

Requesting a Carthage Email Account

Occasionally, members of the Carthage Community need an alternate email account created for a group, event, search committee, department, etc. Many times a Google Group will work better than an email account. See this guide for more information. Click on the link below to submit a request for a group email account.
