About Computer Accounts and Policies

Activate your Account
If you have not yet done so, please activate your computer account by following the information at the DU IT's New Student Accounts Activation page. Pay special attention to the official policies, procedures and terms of service that you are agreeing to when accepting your account. Also be sure to change your password and do not ever share any of your passwords with anyone.

After you activate your Account you will have access to the following:

Email Account:
Email is the primary means of communication between the school and students. For this reason, it is mandatory that all students activate and check their official University email account. It is each student's responsibility to check email regularly and to be sure that the mailbox has not exceeded its quota. All official College of Medicine correspondence will be sent to your University email account. Students may elect to use another email address from other sources, however, it is then their responsibility to forward the University email to the external account and make sure that it continues to function.

Since Microsoft Office 365 and OneDrive will give you a vast amount of storage space, we recommend using Outlook in Office 365 for your email. View Email Setup instructions

DrexelOne is a web portal for Drexel students. Use your Drexel User ID and your email password to access DrexelOne. Here you will find informational messages and you can even customize the page to display the headlines and information you want. You can get access to your BannerWeb account (see Banner below) through DrexelOne as well as access to your Blackboard Learn courses (see Blackboard Learn below).

Banner is the name of the system which holds all of your personal student information, including official grades, financial aid info, contact info and more. You can view and make changes to some of this information using BannerWeb. BannerWeb is accessable by logging into DrexelOne (see above).

All postings from third party accounts (such as GMail, MSN, Comcast, Verizon, etc) will be rejected. To see all the class lists and the rules for using them, click on the Class Email Lists link on the main Webcampus Current Students page or go there directly at
