    a directory service for the VSU campus community.
    It is a directory where information is stored to
    allow you access to services and resources. You
    are required to login to Active Directory, and
    change your password, before being able to login
    to Blackboard, GroupWise email, or the campus
    Wireless network.
  • User names are formatted as follows first
    initial and last name
  • Snow Sample
  • Ssample_at_vsu.edu
  • There is no initial password. Simply hit the
    enter key after typing in your user name. You
    will then be prompted for a new password.
  • Password criteria
  • A minimum length of 8 alphanumeric characters.
