Revised: September, 2015
Renew your student organization for the year with a simple 2-step process.
Any student organization officially registered with the Center for Student Involvement (CSI) at UC San Diego may open an ACMS computer account. These accounts are available to promote communication between members of the organization and to help publicize the organization's events.
Student organization accounts are set to expire on November 1st every school year. Be sure to re-register well before then so as to not interrupt service.
Hosting is provided by ACMS free-of-charge and includes a virtual host name (e.g. myorgname.ucsd.edu). All requests must come from a principal member using their @ucsd.edu email address. Student organization websites support server-side dynamic content.
Student organization websites may be accessed via SSH or SFTP. Here's what you need to know to get connected.
Your organization may wish to set up its own mailing list.
Student organization accounts are assigned a randomly generated password upon creation. Feel free to change the password to something you prefer using our Global Password Change tool.
If you don't remember your password, a principal member will need to come to the ACMS Help Desk with a photo ID and we can reset it for you.
Student organization email accounts authorize electronic communication by and for only the advisor and principal members. Student organization emails are shared accounts; personal email addresses may not be listed as the organization's contact address. Individual members must use their student accounts for personal email.
This account is NOT to be used for any of the following:
ACMS requires that student organizations re-register every Fall through the Center for Student Involvement office. This allows you to update your principal members and will let us know that your organization is still using the account.
Student organizational accounts and their authorized users are responsible for abiding by the ACMS Acceptable Use Policies.
The web services provided are intended for websites hosted on our servers. We do not provide redirection services. If we discover that your site is being used only to redirect to an outside domain, your ACMS student organization website will be deactivated.
