The sudents username is first intial of firstname and full last name with rome added to it. example John Doe username would be jdoerome. In most cases that will work however if there is a Jane Doe we can't have another person with jdoerome, so in cases like that they may have second letter of first name added example Jane would use jadoerome. They may even have to use third letter depending on how many people have that combination of letters, such as there may be a Jayden Doe.
Password is assigned by the students ID number. The last 5 numbers of their student ID is their password. Example if student ID is 123456789 password would be 56789.
