Request CedarNet Username Change

Three times a year, we offer students the opportunity to request a change in their CedarNet username (login name) Reasons for requesting a change would include wanting a shorter login name or to reflect a change in your last name (via marriage or some other legal action). The CedarInfo transaction for requesting a change in your username is located under “Individual Transactions.”

The deadline for requesting changes this semester is May 6. The actual changes will be made on the morning of May 9. The next open period for requesting a change will be at the end of the summer semester, so if you are anticipating a change in legal name before then, you should consider requesting a change in your username now.

You will want to think about some potential negatives in regards to changing your username, especially if you have used your Cedarville email address to subscribe to Facebook, shopping accounts, etc. Changing your username also changes your Cedarville email address.

Once a username is changed, we will maintain an alias for the old email address for a period of six months. incoming email sent to the old address and the new address will be delivered. After six months, only the new email address will be valid.

Windows 10 – Get it for free

  2. Log in with your CedarNet username and password.
