How to login to a password-protected site
For Faculty and Staff
IMPORTANT: Please read these instructions
before attempting to login
Full-time CCRI faculty and staff can access password-protected areas
of the CCRI public site (www.ccri.edu) by logging in using their domain account user name and password.
How do I know if I have a domain account? All CCRI employees have domain accounts.
I have more than one username and password so, which one do I
use? If you login to a college computer, either in an office or
in a classroom, to access your department's share drive, you are using your
domain account user name and password to login. This is the user name and
password you need to use to access password-protected areas.
If you have never used your domain account to login to a college
computer, try using your MyCCRI user name and password (more
on this below).

...this is usually the same name that appears before
the "@ccri.edu" in your e-mail address. For example,
Professor Jane Doe's CCRI e-mail address is:firstname.lastname@example.org.
Jane's username would be "jdoe1" so she would enter
"campus\jdoe1" in the user name field.
