    Dartmouth Accounts Service Overview



    Your Dartmouth account is a unique 7 character sequence of letters and numbers used to identify you to Dartmouth systems and services. It is commonly referred to as your NetID (Network Identifier).

    When a new account is created, it must be “claimed” before it can be used. The claiming process involves setting a password for the account, then choosing security questions and answers for the account. You will be prompted to answer these security questions at different times, one word answers are the best option.
