Domain Account and NetID

Student Affairs staff members have two primary accounts that allow access to computing services: the University NetID and the Student Affairs Domain Account.


What is a domain?

A domain is a way to network or connect users, printers and computers to servers called domain controllers. The domain controllers are then able to ensure that all these objects have the same settings and configurations such as file drive locations, printer settings, security settings, account password complexity policies, updates and more.  The domain ensures that all the computers in the domain look the same and can be managed all as one system.  The domain managed by SAIT is called the Student Affairs domain (SA domain).
