Guest accounts

High school and non-traditional students

If you are newly enrolled in a Colgate course by the Registrar, a Colgate network account and a Moodle account will be created automatically. You must contact the ITS Service Desk to get initial access to your network account and use it to login to Moodle. Contact or 315-228-7111.

Guest Accounts

For special users (e.g., non-Colgate students, guests) who do not have a network account or others who need special access, a local Moodle guest account will be created which will authenticate directly with Moodle.

Your host or Colgate ITS will normally contact you with your username (normally your email address). Login to Colgate’s Moodle at Moodle.Colgate.Edu and select Moodle Guest Account Sign-in.

Most new guest accounts will require a password change when you first login. Moodle guest account passwords can be reset via the Lost password? link. Moodle guest account passwords must include at least one of each of the following: upper-case letter, lower-case letter, number, special character (e.g., “&”).
