A Summarized IITS Guide for New Students

Welcome to King’s! There are a few things you should know about how to get around here using technology, and we summarized them here, if you missed our in-person orientation sessions. The points in this guide are essential for you to keep in contact and up to date with various parts of your life here at King’s. We’ve compiled this list of what’s what and ranked them in order of importance for people new to the campus. Should you have any questions along the way, always contact The Help Desk via help@kings.edu or 570-208-5900 ext. 4357 (also located in-person on the 3rd floor in The McGowan School of Business).

A few essential warnings for new students:

PART 1: Establish your account

  • New users are provided with a username and ID number
    • Your King’s username is first & last name @kings.edu
      • For example: Alexandra Smith = alexandrasmith@kings.edu
      • Joe Average = josephaverage@kings.edu
    • ID numbers can be found on your student ID card or through correspondence with an office you may be in touch with.
  • On-campus, you can log in to a computer with the username and ID number, then you’ll be prompted to change your password to something you’ll remember and be comfortable with.
  • Off-campus users can do the same thing here: https://dc-4.kings.edu/adfs/portal/updatepassword

PART 2: Log in to your webmail

Once you have your account established, you can login to webmail. On the MyKing’s page, at the bottom of the left column, follow links for webmail.

  • To log in to webmail, use your King’s username and password from Part 1.

WA_SGPART 3: Log in to WebAdvisor

WebAdvisor is most essential for a new-comer because it’s how to obtain your schedule. After that, you have a variety of other things you can do throughout the semesters ahead: get your grades, register for classes, view financial aid information, find semester invoice amounts, print unofficial transcript, and find work study timecard reporting and pay stubs.

  • On MyKing’s, click WebAdvisor on the left, then click the big Login to WebAdvisor button.
  • After the page fully loads, click the I’m New to WebAdvisor link on the bottom-right of the page.
  • Follow the on-screen prompts to establish a temporary password, which will be sent to your email address.
  • When you log in with the temporary password, you will create a new one. Pay attention to the password policy, as it uniquely requires passwords over 6 and under 9 characters, requires at least one letter and number, and excludes special characters (ex. @#$%^&*_+ ).
  • On future visits to the site, if you forget your password, click the What’s my password? link on the bottom left and follow a similar procedure to reset your WebAdvisor password.
  • Once you’re logged in to WebAdvisor, click the blue STUDENTS button on the right side, then look for the My Class Schedule link (towards the bottom of the right-hand column), and choose the appropriate semester’s schedule you’re looking for and click Submit to view your schedule.

PART 4: Enroll in Emergency Notification System

ENS is essential for keeping up to date with the latest security concerns and school closures.

  • On MyKing’s, click Emergency Notification on the left (not “Emergency Notification Bulletin Board”).
  • First time-users, click the link to Register for e2Campus, then click the link to Create a student account. (Note: On future returns to ENS, you can log in directly on the page.)
  • When prompted, login with your email address and password.
  • Follow the on-screen instructions to complete registration. When you fill in your mobile phone number, you’ll get a text message with a temporary code. Enter this code into the system when prompted and your registration will be complete.
  • Additionally you can add voice and email notifications for alternate phone numbers or emails.

PART 5: Sign in to Moodle

Moodle logoMoodle is our Learning Management System and many of your instructors will use it to distribute files, collect assignments, give quizzes, and much more. You’ll have access to Moodle courses when classes begin. Brand new students will not be able to log in until closer to the start of courses.

  • On MyKing’s, click Moodle on the left menu.
  • Login to Moodle by clicking the blue Sign in with Office 365 button and your King’s username and password from Part 1.
  • You will have access to courses using Moodle, though not all will use it. Additionally, you will have access by the day the course starts, so if you log in a week early, the course may not be listed yet. If your course has begun and your instructor is using Moodle, but it’s not available to you, contact moodle@kings.edu.

Other cool things to know about:

  • As part of your tuition, you can download, install, and run Microsoft Office on up to 5 devices. Find out more here.
  • Along with your Office 365 @kings.edu account, you have 1 TB of cloud storage on OneDrive, which you can access through the app launcher in your email.
  • Add certain devices to the WiFi network using the Wireless Device Self-Registration page (login with your email and password).
  • The Help Desk offers complementary virus scans and labor on personal machines. Stop by and see them on the 3rd Floor of McGowan.
  • You have access to thousands of tutorials and guides about using technology, citations, and other skills from Atomic Learning. Log in with your username and password.

Finally, HAVE A GREAT TIME HERE. We’re glad to have you on board. Again, if you have any questions along the way, always contact The Help Desk via help@kings.edu or 570-208-5900 ext. 4357 (also located in-person on the 3rd floor in The McGowan School of Business).
