Andrew & Tepper Accounts 

As a student you have two accounts, your Andrew account and your Tepper account.

  • The Andrew account ends in and is a University account. Your email address is only active while you are a student.
  • The Tepper account ends in and is only for Tepper students. MSCF students are considered Tepper students. Your email address is an email address powered by Google.
See the email section for setting up your email address.

Andrew Accounts

Your Andrew account is accessed with the ID that's assigned to you by Computing services. Your Andrew account provides you with professionally backed up storage accessible from any networked computer system. it also provides access to andrew network laser printers. Moreover, you can access electronic mail and bulletin boards for local, national and international communications. Your initial password is the first eight digits of your social security number (If you are an international student use the first eight digits of your student ID number). You can change this password in a variety of ways with the easiest being to go to Be careful with your Andrew account password because if you forget it you must talk to the university to have it reset. The university, not the Tepper Computing Group, controls Andrew and all Andrew resources.
