First Login Procedure

Every CSE student needs to complete the first login process. CSE uses the same username as your MSU NetID. Password is your student PID, starting with capital A.

Since new accounts use student PID for password, accounts are vulnerable until this process is completed. At any point you may receive an email reminding you of this.


In the Windows Lab, login to the CSE domain. Cltr-Alt-Delete and choose Change Password.

In the Linux Lab (Bob and Simpsons), login with any window manager. SSH command line to You will be prompted for the rest.Once connected, you will be prompted to accept the CSE Acceptable Use Policy.

Once accepted, you will be prompted to change your password. CSE requires a strong password.
