Introducing RAM ID

We are glad to introduce RAM ID as CCSF’s password management service in honor of the CCSF Rams mascot. RAM ID will help eliminate the need for individual passwords to each of the services listed below.

For Faculty and Staff, your RAM ID is typically your first initial followed by last name, the same as your email name. RAM ID will allow you to login to the following systems:

  •     CCSF desktop network
  •     CCSF Staff WiFi network
  •     Office 365 email
  •     Argos
  •     CurricUNET Curriculum Module (Not Assessment Module)
  •     Canvas

For Students, your RAM ID is your Student ID number, typically starting with a W or @. RAM ID will allow you to login to the following systems:

  •     CCSF Student WiFi network
  •     Canvas
  •     Campus Logic (Financial Aid)

Managing your password is done through the 24/7 RAM ID Self Service portal.
