Technology Keeps You Connected

Transylvania makes it easy for you to stay connected with your classmates, your university records and accounts, and the general goings-on on campus.

Thanks to the hardworking staff in Information Technology (IT), you'll have access to a variety of technology tools and services that will make your college experience more streamlined and efficient. Whether you live on campus, commute, or are studying abroad, the IT staff members are here to serve you: from answering technology questions or maintaining lab computers to making it possible for you to register for courses and view your grades online.

Attention, admitted students!

Admitted students will receive information about their TNET account in mid-March. Access TNet to review your financial aid package and accept or decline particular awards within your aid package. You can also use TNet to view class offerings for the fall term and register for T-Alerts.

Your TNet user ID will be sent to you in a letter from the admissions office. This letter explains how to reset your TNet password, which will be sent to the email address you provided on your admission application. If you need to use a different email address, please contact the admissions office.

You will receive your Transylvania email address in July before you come to campus. You can access your email account anywhere in the world by visiting http://google.transy.edu.

Your Transy ID (the part of your email address before the @transy.edu) and password associated with your email account give you access to many university resources. For example, you can click Campus Community at the top of this page and log in to access Inside Transy, our campus intranet.

Visit http://outside.transy.edu to see a complete list of helpful Transylvania websites that are otherwise only available while on campus. You will be required to log in with your Transy ID and password to access these sites.
