Access to ARES requires your USC Net ID and password. Your USC NetID, which is sometimes also referred to as your "username", is the first part of your USC e-mail address; the part before the "@". For example, if your email were 'email@example.com' you would enter 'ttrojan' in the USC NetID box. Your password is the same as the one you would use to access email using the USC email system.
