Before you start, please make sure you retrieve your NetID and password. This is the username and password that you setup earlier this summer and may have used for your language exam. The NetID is a short username, such as "abc12" and it is different from your Student ID, which looks like "S01234567". An easy way to remember your NetID is that it's usually your initials followed by a number.
If you have forgotten your password, use iforgot.rice.edu to reset it.
