What is the LancerNet ID, what is it used for, and how do I get one? 

The LancerNet ID and password are used to access the myLongwood web portal, Longwood's email system, Canvas, etc. The LancerNet password must meet the complexity standards as defined in the University's Password Management Policy and is set to expire on a 120-day cycle. The LancerNet ID and password are requested via the New User Form.

How do I change my account IDs if I have a name change?
