Student Accounts for Email, Blackboard, Labs and Library, and CAMS Students Portal

First, you’ll need to know your username for email and other services. Usernames are composed of your first initial, middle initial, last name, then the last two digits of your Social Security Number (SSN). So if your name is Casey A. Smith and your SSN is 123-45-6789, your username would be casmith89. For your password, we use the the first letter of your first name (capitalized), the first letter of your last name (capitalized) and the last six digits of your SSN.

There are a few things to watch for with usernames, if you don’t have a middle name, or did not give that information to Admissions, we leave out the middle initial (for example,csmith89). We also take any special characters out of last names, such as apostrophes or spaces (for example, O’Malley would become OMalley, and Van Pelt would become VanPelt). Generally, hyphens are left in unless the name is too long. Usernames cannot exceed 20 characters.

Your Cumberland University email address is your username, followed by @students.cumberland.edu (for example, casmith89@students.cumberland.edu).

VERY IMPORTANT: Your Cumberland University email address is the main point of contact that faculty and staff members will use to reach you, so please check it at least twice a week.

Also, any important information that is broadcast out to all students, such as special events, deadlines for registration and fees, schedules, etc. will be sent to the students.cumberland.edu addresses.
