Setting Up Your Device

NOTE: Before continuing it might be easier to view this tutorial on a separate device so you can follow along on the device you will use at Concordia.


Before using your device at school you will want to have it prepared and ready to go. Before continuing with device set-up be sure you know your Concordia Username and Concordia Email address:

CLHS Username: The last 2 of graduation year + first initial + last name (NO spaces, hyphens or apostrophes)
    • Example: If Sarah Smith-Jones graduates in 2024 her CLHS username would be 24ssmithjones

CLHS Email: CLHS email address is the CLHS Username +
    • Example: Sarah Smith-Jones's CLHS username is 24ssmithjones so her CLHS email address would be

CLHS Default Password for all registration is (all lowercase): cadets1234   


Step 1: Run All System Updates

From the home screen, touch -> settings -> general -> Software Update

Apple logo (upper left corner) -> System Preferences -> Software Update

Step 2: Know Your Account Information

To install apps on your MacBook/iPad, you will need an AppleID, non-Apple products might need a Google account, Microsoft account, etc.

Step 3: Name Your Device

If your device is ever misplaced and needs to be located on our network it is critical that you know the device name.

From the home screen, touch -> settings (Gear icon) -> General -> About -> Name -> Enter your CLHS username

Apple logo (upper left corner) -> System Preferences -> Sharing -> In the Computer Name box enter your CLHS username (example: 24ssmithjones) -> click red X in left corner of box

Should you misplace your device at Concordia the MAC Address is critical for locating it on our network. Please note this address and keep this someplace accessable (not on your device) in case you need help finding it.
