What is my personal ID?

In NoodleTools, your work is stored in a personal folder. Your Personal ID (and password) is your key to your personal folder. It identifies you uniquely, and allows you to access your personal folder from any computer that has Internet access and a Web browser.

IMPORTANT! Your personal ID is NOT THE SAME as your CSU or TOPCAT username/password!

Revalidating NoodleTools Accounts

NoodleTools accounts need to be revalidated each year. To request that your account be revalidated, email your name and NoodleTools Personal ID (username) to Do NOT send your NoodleTools password. You will receive an email when your account has been revalidated.

Applies to current Stritch students, faculty or staff only.
