The Problem

Students have used different user names and passwords for applications and services such as Gila Hank Online, WebStudy, and On-Campus wireless internet access. Managing several IDs and passwords is not the easiest thing to do.

The Solution

Monster ID to the rescue! Soon this one ID will allow you access to all EAC systems. To start with, your Monster ID will get you into Gila Hank Online, WebStudy online classes, control your Student Network Access and give you access to all of our new MonsterApps like MonsterMail and Calendar.

Gila Hank On-Line is the place to go if you ever want to change your password. You can use your Monster ID to access Gila Hank On-Line to set your password there and then use the same Monster ID and updated password in other EAC systems like WebStudy and MonsterMail.

Your single Monster ID also controls your Google Gmail-driven MonsterMail address. If your Monster ID were abc13 your new email address would be abc13@monsters.eac.edu. Your MonsterMail account is where all official emails from EAC will be sent, but we hope you'll use it for everything. It's also just fun to have a Monster of an email address.

The Future

Not all EAC systems will use your Monster ID yet, but they soon will. Please be patient with us during our transition.

How to get started

Get started using your new Monster ID by going to Gila Hank Online and logging in.
