First of all, Welcome!
Here at Hiram you will maintain three separate accounts: Hiramnet, Email, and Web4Student. As a new student, you are required to do an initial configuration on each of these accounts. The following sections will help you in this process, as well as give instruction on how to manage these accounts once created.
You will use the “Student Computer Account Information” that was e-mailed to you for this process. Within that document you will have your Hiramnet Username, Windows Live E-mail account, Web4Student ID/Banner ID, and corresponding Passwords and Pin numbers needed to activate your accounts. Follow the steps below to activate your accounts.
- Hiramnet (Step 1)
Your Hiramnet account is considered your web identity here at Hiram. You use this account to log on to lab computers located around campus, campus wireless internet access, Hiram Portal, and also your specific course websites through Sakai.
To set up initially, and maintain your Hiramnet account, you will need to enroll through Password Manager. Within Password Manager, you will find all of the tools you need to maintain your Hiramnet password. Instructions on enrolling your Hiramnet account into Password Manager (enrolling is the first step) and resetting your password (second step) can be found in the links below.
If you would like additional information on what all this password is utilized for like Hiram Portal or Sakai, refer to the link below. (Note: This link is not necessary for initial account set up, simply for additional information)
- Email (Step 2)
Your next step is to configure your Hiram Email account. Email serves the main method of communication between you, your professors, and classmates. Hiram College uses Windows Live Email. For information on how to configure your email, please refer to the link below.
Once configured, you may need to change or recover your Email password. For instruction on this topic, please see the following link. (Note: This process is not necessary for initial account set up, only if you have forgotten your password)
- Web4Student (Step 3)
Finally, your Web4Student account must be configured. This account allows you make changes to your class schedule by adding and dropping courses online. To Configure your Web4Student account, please refer to the link below.
After your Web4Student account has been set up, you may need to change or recover your Web4Student Pin. For instruction on this topic, please see the following link. (Note: This process is not necessary for initial account set up, only if you have forgotten your pin)
