To log in to any Biola system or service, you will need your NetID and the associated password. This includes common services like my.biola, wireless network access, and Canvas.
Your NetID cannot be changed.
The NetID consists of the first name, last initial, and one or more numbers (e.g. johnf59). Biola community members use the first time access process to set the NetID password, an alternate email address, and personal security questions. The personal security questions are part of the password reset process.
New students receive a NetID when they submit they are accepted or pay their required deposit. New faculty and staff receive a NetID on their start date.
Only one NetID is assigned to an individual. Faculty and staff include full-time and part-time faculty, faculty emeriti, full-time and part-time staff, and trustees. Students include full and part-time undergrad and graduate students.
The following services don't use your NetID, but instead have their own unique login credentials:
- Google Apps (Uses your full email address and NetID password.)
- Library Catalog
- The Raiser's Edge
