Getting Started – Student Checklist
You will have two main accounts while here at Immaculata:
Your MACNET network account is used on campus to log into computer workstations and labs, as well to access library resources.
- What are my username and password for MACNET? See – How do I login to on-campus computers?
- If you still cannot log in, you can email the helpdesk (firstname.lastname@example.org) with your name and Student ID number
Your myIU account is used to access the university portal for grades, records, and registration, to get your email, and to access the online Learning Management System (LMS).
Set up your laptop/desktop:
You can connect your device to the university network for access to the internet and university file storage.
There are a few things you will need to do to prepare your devices for use on the university network.

Access Online Materials for Classes through Moodle:
MOODLE is the university’s official Learning Management System (LMS). All classes that are 100% online are facilitated through MOODLE, and many professors teaching face-to-face classes also use it to provide handouts, reading notes, lecture materials, and even assignments and quizzes. Not all face-to-face courses use MOODLE, so be sure to ask your professor!
- How do I login to Moodle?
- How do I find my course in Moodle?
- I cannot see my course in Moodle!
- Learn more about the Moodle LMS – Moodle Help Sheet
- ACCEL Student? How do I get my ACCEL Learner Guide from Moodle?
Figure out which textbooks you’ll need:
