7. Scroll to the bottom of the page. Your “Username/Email” address may be any name that meets the criteria listed and is available. You may choose the username suggested, or create one of your own. For example, "melissa@oru.edu." You must then create a seven-character password. Usernames are case-insensitive and may only contain alphanumeric (A-Z a-z 0-9), underscore (_), and hyphen/minus (-) characters. Passwords must be complex, containing characters from at least 3 of the following 4 categories: uppercase (A-Z), lowercase (a-z), number (0-9), or special (~!@#$%^&*_-+=`|\(){}[]:;"'<>,.?/). Passwords may not contain your name, username, nor Z-number. Once you have done so, select Create Account. You will then see a screen that says “SUCCESS.”
