Step 3 - Enter or click on your email address in the Email Address field as follows: firstname.lastname@campus.edu with the campus being your Primary Home campus. For example:

  • Francine.Smith@granite.edu
  • Tom.Brown@keene.edu
  • Susan.Smith@plymouth.edu
  • Joe.White@unh.edu

Note: if your primary email address does not work, try your unique USNH identifier:  username@usnh.edu
