CMS Computer Account Request


IF YOU ALREADY HAVE A CMS ACCOUNT, DO NOT COMPLETE THIS FORM. IF YOUR ACCOUNT IS DEACTIVATED OR LOCKED OUT, YOU MUST CONTACT THE SYSTEMS ADMINISTRATORS OUTSIDE OF EMAIL TO REACTIVATE YOUR ACCOUNT.

You can accomplish this by dropping by the CMS sysadmin offices in 112 Annenberg. You can call us ahead of time to make sure we are present...
Pat Cahalan (626) 395-3290, or Dave Leblanc (626) 395-2402.
Please be prepared to show us your Caltech ID. We will reactivate your account with your old password, and set it so that you will be required to change your password on your next login. If you've forgotten your password, we can reset it to a new password when we have you in the office. We no longer reset passwords over the phone.
