Requesting a Shell Account (or a password reset)

In order to request an account on the shell.newpaltz.edu web server, follow the steps below.  Note: If you already have an account, you can still follow the steps on this page to set a new password on the system.

Students:

  • Log in to my.newpaltz.edu
  • Click on "Information Technology Services" on the left.
  • Click "Sign up for Web Space".
  • Enter a password for your shell account, and click "Request Shell Account"

Faculty/Staff

  • Log in to my.newpaltz.edu
  • Click on "Employee Resources" on the left.
  • Click "Request Shell Account".
  • Enter a password for your shell account, and click "Request Shell Account"

 

Note: for all users (faculty, staff, and students) account creation and password changes are done automatically every hour.  You should get a notice at your campus email account (Office 365 for faculty/staff, Hawkmail for students) when your account is setup (or when your password is changed).
