Accessing a TA/Class Account

The ta_login script allows you to login to a teaching assistant (TA) account. (If you have not already registered for a TA account, see Registering for a TA/Class Account.)

To use the ta_login script, enter ta_login and the username for the TA account at a Linux prompt. You will be prompted to enter your passphrase. The following is an example of how to login to the cosc140 TA account.

After you are finished using the TA account, close the session by typing exit 
in each window in which a TA account session has been opened.
