Protect all of your PLU identity information as you would any other personal
information (driver's license, social security number,
etc.). Do not share your passwords with anyone or
write them down in obvious places--treat them as you would treat
an ATM PIN number. After using Webmail, which is
accessible through any internet browser, close the browser so that
others can not access your email account.
A LuteCard is your PLU identification card with your name, photo, and
student identity number. It is also your library card, your
on-campus meal plan card, and even an on-campus purchasing card. You'll
need your LuteCard to access most PLU sports events, the Names Fitness
Center and the swimming pool.
You'll need a barcode attached to your LuteCard -- together they become your Library Card. Obtain your barcode at the Library Circulation Desk.
Your ePass account gives you access to a wide range of resources at PLU. Here's a list of some of them:
Your username is public information and also functions as your e-mail address at PLU. To access your account,
you will first be asked for your username, which will be shown as you type it. After that, you'll be asked for your
password, which will be shown as asterisks (*) as you type it.
Your password is like an ATM PIN number -- it is
the secret part of your account that you should keep to yourself so no
one else can have access to your account.
You will need to activate your ePass account before you can use it. To do so, click on the link below.
Your ePass account at PLU is required in order to use the University's email, search research databases, log onto computers, and use Sakai. Accounts are provided to all students prior to the semester that they will be enrolled at PLU. Note: If you have problems with the ePass activation or creation, contact the Computing and Telecommunicatons Services (CATS) at 253-535-7525.
You will be issued an 8 digit student ID number. This number will be
printed on your LuteCard. You will use it on many official PLU forms.
Student ID Numbers are included in the acceptance packet that you
receive when you are accepted into PLU. This ID number is used with Banner Web. Note:
If you have a problem with your Student ID Number prior to starting at
PLU, contact the Admissions Office at 253-535-7151; if you have a
problem with your Student ID number after classes have started, contact
Student Services at 253-535-7136.
Look up your Student ID Number
To access Banner Web, enter your User ID (your student ID number) and your PIN (personal identification number). Your default PIN is initially set to be your birth date (MMDDYY). The system will require you to change your PIN immediately after your initial log-in.
You can manage your Sakai user profile from your My Workspace page. From the My Workspace tab, click the Profile tool on the left side of the page. To hide your profile in Sakai, check the "Hide my entire Profile" box. Click the Save button
at the bottom of the page for the changes to take effect.
The student e-mail address directory is accessible by anyone on the Internet. By default, all students are added to this directory when they receive a PLU ePass. You can add or remove yourself from the directory by using the link below.
You may wish to create an alias of your PLU ePass username, such as a nickname or your full name. All e-mail sent to the alias address will go into your same PLU e-mail account that you access using your ePass username and password.
The student phone directory is only accessible by PLU community members with an ePass account. By default, all personnel and students are added to this directory when they receive a PLU ePass. You can add or remove yourself from the directory by using the link below.
Every ePass account can have a web site associated with it. To set one up go to https://www.plu.edu/htbin/protected/webpage.pl?sub_opcode=2. If you don't have a web site and access the web page registration function, you will be told you have no web site and given a chance to create one. For students and personnel, this creation involves only the click of a button. If you are setting up a web site for a department or organization account, you also have the option of entering a description for your web site link on the PLU web site index page.
Once you click on the button to create the site, it will take about an hour for the request to be processed. If you access the web page registration function before the processing is complete, you will be told that the request is still pending. When processing is complete, the registration function will tell you that you do have a web site and display the link to your site.
The link will take you to the default "template" page that the system created for you. The link to your site will also be placed in the appropriate PLU web site index page, listed with either your name or a department/organization description.
So, how do you go about putting your own pages up instead of the default page? The most common way is to use an FTP (File Transfer Protocol) program to copy files into your web page space. The details will vary according to the FTP program you use, but here are some things that will be the same, no matter what program you use:
So, what if you no longer want you web site listed on the PLU web page index or accessible to the Internet? You can use the web page registration function to remove your web site. Note: Doing this doesn't get rid of your web pages. It just makes it so no one can get to your site from the Internet and it isn't listed anywhere on the PLU web site. If you change your mind, you can always re-enable your web site. Doing this will not hurt your web pages. The default home page is only created if you don't already have one in the "public_html" directory on the web server.
Removing access to your web site is essentially the reverse of the creation process, in that the system takes up to an hour to process the request. The web registration function will tell you that a remove request is pending until it has been processed.
