Mines MultiPass Account Claim

Campus Computing, Communications, and Information Technologies (CCIT) welcomes you to Mines!

Mines accepted applicants, students, faculty, staff and some affiliates may access various Mines computing resources. Most computing resources are available using your Mines MultiPass credentials (your campus username and MultiPass password).

IMPORTANT NOTE: During Account Claim, you will select your campus username. Please choose carefully. Your campus username will be used during your time at Mines to login to Mines computer systems and as the username portion of your Mines email address (for roles that include email access). If possible, we recommend that you choose a shorter username.

If there is a problem with the username choices presented or if you have a multi-part family name that produces long username choices, DO NOT complete the Account Claim process. Please submit a Mines Help Center "Helpdesk" support request to report the problem with the username choices or ask for possible alternate usernames.

Once you select your username, please write it down. It will be the first part of your Mines email address. (For example, username=joeuser, email address=joeuser@mines.edu.)

ONCE YOU HAVE YOUR NEW MINES ACCOUNT... HERE'S MORE INFORMATION AND SOME OF THE RESOURCES YOU MAY BE ABLE TO ACCESS (Actual access is based on your campus role(s)):

General Information about CCIT Accounts [ info ]
Getting Started Information [ info ]


Access for Accepted Applicants:

  • Trailhead [ info | login ]: The main campus web portal gives you financial aid awards and other information relevant as you decide if you would like to become a Mines student. If you become a Mines student, additional access within Trailhead will be assigned, as well as access to email, the campus computer labs, etc.
     

Mines computer systems that can be accessed now via MultiPass. (Actual access is based on campus roles.):

  • Trailhead [ info | login ]: The main campus web portal.
    • For students, Trailhead gives access to grades, financial aid awards, registration, transcripts, and much more (including one-click access to other services).
    • For employees, Trailhead gives access to employment records (such as pay stubs and tax forms), finance information and reports, and much more (including one-click access to other services).
  • Campus Housing signup [ info ]
  • Email: Exchange for Faculty and staff [ info | login ] and MyMail for students [ info | login ]
  • OrgSync [ login ] -- the student-organization portal.
  • ADIT: Log into Windows computer labs throughout campus.
  • Travel and Expense Management (TEM) system [ info ]
  • Campus Linux lab computers.
  • High-Performance Computing (HPC) resources [ info ]
  • Inter-Library Loan [ Info | login ]
  • Lon-Capa [ login ] -- Physics learning online.
  • The school's Virtual Private Network (VPN) [ info | login ] -- required for connection to many school resources from off campus.
  • The Library Patron system [ infologin ] -- Reserve books, check due dates, etc.
  • ODS/Cognos  -- report and report writing tools for adminstrative offices.
  • Cayuse -- web-based research propsal and award management system.

CCIT is working to connect MultiPass to the additional services (but in the meantime we will provide alternate access to these resources):

  • Blackboard [ infologin ]: The campuswide learning-management system provides access to course sysllabi, assignments, online quizzes, tests, exams, grades and more. Blackboard is also sometimes used for back-and-forth communication by campus committees.
  • Some Banner and Banner-Related Services:  Banner is the campus system for student, employee, and finance records. Students, employees, and faculty use Banner Self-Service to access their related records (e.g., registration, grades, pay stubs, and more). Administrators access Internet Native Banner (INB) to manage campus records. Other Banner-related services are: ePrint (financial reports), and ODS/Discoverer. (ODS/Cognos, TEM, and Cayuse already use MulitPass credentials for authentication.)
  • DiggerNet [ info | login ] -- the Career Center portal
  • The Parking Services system [ info | login ]
  • The web Content Management System

Eventually MultiPass will greatly reduce the number of different passwords that campus users will need to remember. (As an analogy, using a MultiPass account to access a wide variety of Mines services will be similar to using your Google or FaceBook credentials to log into services provided by other organizations.)

This process of adding systems that use MultiPass for authentication is ongoing.
