Moodle Tutorial

How to Obtain a Username and Password:

  • Username: At http://acs.nicholls.edu/email, students can enter their name to obtain their Nicholls e-mail address which contains their username. For example, a student’s Nicholls e-mail address looks like this Username@its.nicholls.edu. NOTE: Your username will be the letters and numbers before the “at” symbol (@).
    • If this search is unsuccessful, students can visit or call any open computer lab for assistance. Please specify that you are requesting assistance in determining your username or userID when contacting one of the labs listed below:
      • WAC Lab, Ellender Library (first floor), 985.448.4765
      • Cenac Lab, 109 Powell Hall, 985.448.4868
      • Ayo Lab, 101 Ayo Hall, 985.493.2560
  • Password: A student’s Moodle password is set as his/her N number. This password cannot be changed.
