How Do I Log in?

 Your log in is first name initial + last name, for example 'John Smith' = 'jsmith' , but becareful, some names come with hiphens or number values!!! ( 'jsmith-doe' or 'jsmith2')

Your password is your student ID number, unless you changed that information in your Alliant e-mail (if you change your password there it will change in all the Alliant systems!).

All this information above is the same way you normally log in to the Alliant computers, Portal and e-mail.

If you don't know that information contact the Alliant Helpdesk at or Telephone: 858-635-4357 and select option 8.

How Do I Check My Email?

To access your email go to The login is the same login you use to login to Moodle, except you must type in "at/" before the username if you are a student and "alliant/" before the username if you are a faculty or staff member. For example a student named Jane Doe has an account is jdoe, so her login to the email is at/jdoe.
