How to set up or change your IdentiKey password:vizio all in one 606-8899223

Login with the CU Identity Manager. In order to set up or change your IdentiKey you will need your current Student ID number, social security number, and date of birth. Once on the CU Identity Manager website select "Activate your IdentiKey," accept the Computer Usage Policy, and then fill out the required fields.

Once you have your IdentiKey not only can you access computers and services on campus but you can also change settings in the CU Identity Manager itself. Through CU Identity Manager you can set how your name shows up in the directory (e.g. switching your last name if you have recently had a change in marital status or adding/deleting your middle name). You can also change how your outgoing email looks (e.g. This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. vs This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. ).

Creating a Website:

It is highly recommended for graduate students to create a professional website to act as a living C.V.. This website should chronicle your research to help build your digital presence and will act as a part of your resume. Because the EBIO department wants to encourage graduate students to create their websites as soon as possible the university will host your website. An example university domain would be www.colorado.edu/ebio/lastname. While the university will host the site free of charge, you will need to build your website and update it yourself. You will want to move your site to a new host when you graduate from CU. If you prefer you can also host your own website with other campus resources or use an off campus host.
