Associate Account Registration


Associate account Directory IDs will be the entire email address (user@email.com). Directory passphrases are valid for up to 180 days. Account-holders will be notified via email to reset and update their passphrases in order to prevent deletion of the account. A passphrase reset generates a link emailed to the account that remains valid for 10 minutes. Accounts with expired passphrases or with no activity after creation will be deleted and removed from the system after 180 days.

NOTE: Students need to log into elms.umd.edu AFTER they create their accounts and set their passphrases to be able to be added to a course.
