What is a fully provisioned School of Journalism network account?

Fully Provisioned Accounts

Picture of iMac
NOTE: You no longer need to manually provision your account. This process is done automatically if you are taking any Journalism class besides JOUR-100H (Media History and Literacy).

A fully provisioned account allows you to use a network home directory for file storage, application use and network access (ex. "Professors" share or network printers) on the School of Journalism servers. On the network home directory you can save files and settings and access them from any other School of Journalism computer.


Network homes are not backed up. After one semester of inactivity, your account will be archived and later deleted as space is needed. Be sure to store anything important on another media.

You can save files to your home folder by clicking "HardDrive" located on your desktop. In the sidebar, you will see a house icon with your NetID next to it, this is your home folder. When you click on it, you'll find your documents folder along with pictures, videos, music, etc. You can drag and drop files into these folders, but remember there is a network storage quota. Also, please remember to back up your files.

Troubleshooting: Occasionally (when a server is down or the computer has issues) the computer will not connect to your network home directory. Instead a home directory could be created locally even though you have a fully provisioned account. If this is the case, move to another computer, wait a few minutes and try logging in again or restart the computer. See Troubleshooting 101. If the problem persists, it's likely that one of the servers is down, for this case you should Open a Ticket

NOTE: If you log into a computer and cannot access your network home directory, anything you save will not be available to you after you log out, so be careful. Signing in with your NetID does not mean you have a fully provisioned account. Signing in with an un-provisioned NetID will only save your settings and files locally; you will only have access to limited services from the School.

If you are taking Journalism classes and notice that you don't have a fully provisioned account, you must open a ticket with Jtech.

We do NOT need your student ID number (ex. 790-XX-XXXX) or your password. Please see Composing a helpful Jtech Ticket

Please note that there will be a delay in processing your request if you fail to provide your NetID or currently enrolled classes.
