Cedarville's Center for Biblical and Theological Studies glowing in the evening light

Cedarville University

Three times a year, we offer students, faculty, and staff the opportunity to request a change in their CedarNet user name (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 Change Your User Name for requesting a change in your username is located under the “Profile” section. The deadline for requesting changes this semester is Saturday, May 12. The actual changes will be made on the morning of Monday, May 14. The changes will take a few hours to process through all of our systems, so people whose usernames are being changed may not have access to some resources that morning.

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 online resources.

Once a username is changed, we will maintain an alias for the old email address for a period of six months. During this time 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.
