Getting Started with Information Technology

Information Technology is an integral part of your position at Albany State University. The following steps will help you meet the technology requirements of the University.

 
Find your RAM ID. Your RAM ID is generated once you are hired with Albany State University. Your RAM ID is the nine-digit number located in your hiring packet. You can go to Banner Web to retrieve your RAM ID. The RAM ID is used as a unique identifier for the campus community members.
 
Test your Network ID. Your Network ID is used to access campus computers, email, the myASU Portal, wireless, SharePoint and more. Go to http://www.asurams.edu and click on myASU Menu. Login with your Network ID and password. If you are successful, you will be logged in to the myASU portal page. If you need assistance, please contact the ITS Helpdesk at (229) 430-4909 or visit in person on the first floor of the James Pendergrast Memorial Library.
 
Check your ASU Faculty/Staff e-mail account. Remember that Albany State University will send all electronic communications to your ASU Faculty/Staff e-mail address. You can sign-in to your faculty/staff email account using your Network ID and password.
 
Start using Banner Web. This online system is used to access your courses and rosters, complete attendance verification and input course grades.  It also provides you with an easy and secure method of accessing your Bosscars vehicle registration. Click here to access Banner Web.
 
Connect your laptop to the ASU WiFi Network.
ASU faculty and staff members are able to gain access to the AIRRAM wireless network by logging on to the system using their Network ID and password.
