Understanding Your Penn Accounts

Follow

Depending on which kind of student you are, you may have several accounts and email addresses. In most cases these are separate accounts, and your passwords may be different. Each account gives you access to different resources (see table below). For security reasons, we strongly urge you to change both account passwords several times a year.
