Obtaining a BOSS PIN
Tech E-mail Account: Using your Tech e-mail account, send an e-mail request to email@example.com providing your name, date of birth, and campus wide ID # and we’ll e-mail the reminder back to your Tech e-mail account. We do not e-mail to commercial ISP accounts (e.g. Yahoo or Hotmail) without a signed request (see next paragraph).
Fax: Complete the BOSS PIN Request Form, print it out, sign it, and then Fax it to us at the number on the form. All instructions are on the form. If you have the connectivity, you can scan the completed, signed form and send the scanned image as an attachment to firstname.lastname@example.org.
In Person: Come by the University Registrar’s Office (Keeny Hall, Room 207) with a picture ID (Tech ID, driver’s license, passport) and we’ll look up the information for you.
