For future reference, your SITNet ID can be found under the Personal Information menu in Banner. Select Display SITNet ID. The password is the 8 character PIN you just created.

Your SITNet ID is the login for many campus resources, including ANGEL, Banner, computer labs, library services, e-mail and Helpdesk ticket system. SITNet ID holders are responsible for all account activity associated with their SITNet IDs. To avoid use by anyone else, keep the password confidential, change it periodically and do not save it in e-mail clients or browsers.

Password changes are performed in the Banner system and are updated to all other systems within 20 minutes of the change.
