This page provides information about your Geneseo student account.
Your Account at Geneseo
An account at Geneseo gives you access to your Google email, calendar and drive, my.geneseo.edu, online class resources (Canvas), and printing services. Accounts remain active for as long as you're a registered student at Geneseo.
Your Geneseo account has a username and email address associated with it. Example:
- Username: pmj99
- Email address: email@example.com
- Please note that official Geneseo correspondence will be sent to your Geneseo email address. You should be monitoring your account often.
Your Geneseo Password
CIT has combined most Geneseo services (eg. Google, myGeneseo, Canvas, printing services) to utilize the same username and password.
- To change the password for these services, visit https://auth.geneseo.edu/passwordreset/. This link may also be used to select a new password if you forgot your current password.
- You can also find a Change Password link on the myGeneseo portal.
- Learn more about managing your password in the Password Management for Faculty, Staff, & Students Self Help
- Take the pain out of managing and remembering all your passwords with Password Managers
Every Geneseo student is a assigned a student ID that we refer to as the "G#". It begins with a G and end in an 8 digit number (e.g. G00123456). Your G# has an initial PIN associated with it that will let you sign-into the KnightWeb student information system. You only need to sign in using your G# and PIN once to set up your Geneseo account. Once your Geneseo account has been set up, you will be able to login to KnightWeb and all other Geneseo resources using your Geneseo username and password.
When is my account created?
- For matriculated undergraduate and graduate students, your account is created within 1 business day after your deposit has been received and processed by Admissions.
- For non-matriculated students taking individual courses, your account is created within 1 business day after your application has been processed by the Registrar's Office.
When your new Geneseo account is created, you will receive an automated email sent to the address you provided when applying to Geneseo. That message will provide instructions on setting up your new account.
