All currently enrolled CRC students.
OK, I am taking one of the above classes but I still can't log on, now what?
You are not typing in the correct user id, and/or password or the log on. See an Instructional Assistant or student helper and show them the error message you are receiving and they can help you to log on.
Why do I need an account?
Your account is your student ID number. All students at CRC have an account automatically generated for them after they register. Your account also comes with a personal network drive (the U drive) so that you can temporarily save your work if you don't have your own disk. In Windows Explorer your U drive starts with W(your student id)
I can't remember my username or password, what do I do?

What is a "N:" drive?
The "N:" drive is where your CIS instructor may store files for their students to access. Open the folder with your instructor's last name and transfer files onto your floppy, zip disk, flash drive or the U drive. If you need assistance just ask an Instructional Assistant or student helper. P.S. you can only access the N drive from a computer lab on campus.
What is a "U:" drive?
The "U:" is a space reserved for students using the Computer Lab. Students that have accounts to use the lab may save their documents to the U: Drive. The U drive is named your log-in name, W(your student id), and is only accessible to you. All files will be erased from the U drive when the semester is over. You can access your U drive from any computer you log on to on campus.
How do I get to the "N:" and "U:" drive?
After logging on to Windows, the desktop will automatically appear. Click on the File Explorer button on the task bar and scroll down the left panel, the N and U drives are located in “This PC”. To access a drive, click on its name.
I am at my U drive but I can't open the files or delete them or am getting an error message that I do not have the proper permission, am I up the creek without a paddle?
Contact an Instructional Assistant and they can reset your U drive so you can work with it, you will not lose your files.
What programs are available on the lab computers?
The programs change every semester to correspond to the courses being offered. Windows 10 is the operating system.
