Accounts: Secondary Accounts

Please note the following about secondary Accounts:

  • There is a 40 character (Alpha Numeric Only) limit including spaces for display names. Display names must have at least two words, none of which can begin with a numeral.
  • There is a 16 character limit for logon ID's.
  • There is no fee as long as the groups/clubs are LSU clubs that are sponsored/moderated by an LSU employee.
  • The accounts will have to be managed by a full time employee. This means that the full time person will be the owner of the account and will be the only one that can manage the password for the account.
