A note about the CougarID and CBC employees: Although students will use their CougarID to access internet-based services, faculty and staff will use their email user name and password (without the @coastalbend.edu). If an employee brings a personal laptop to campus, he/she uses the email user name and the Social Security Number for the password (with no dashes). An extended explanation is here.
