Instructions for staff and faculty at Sewanee for access to the ACS Community website
The ACS Community website uses Microsoft Active Directory to manage access using a local campus login. The network login for Sewanee users, however, is not synced with the Sewanee Active Directory. As a result, a user from Sewanee must first sign up separately for a Microsoft Office 365 account to get a Microsoft Active Directory account for ACS login.
Users at Sewanee should complete the following steps to create an account:
- Go to this link: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/education/products/office
- Enter your Sewanee email address
- Choose “I’m a Teacher” (whether faculty or staff) to create account or sign in
- If creating an account, you will be emailed a verification code that must be entered. If anyone has an issue creating their account, please reach out to the helpdesk at 931-598-1369 or email@example.com.
Once you have created a Sewanee Microsoft Office 365 account, you will use this account and password rather than your network login to authenticate for the ACS Community websites.
