Chesapeake's portal and course learning system - Angel - is the single entry point for classes, email, and CRAB. All classes have an Angel course site. Courses are normally open to students on the first day of class.
Your username/ID is usually your first and last name, no spaces, all lower case. In some cases where there are multiple people with the same name, you may have a number on the end. If you're not sure, you can check your username online. Please be aware that this will be your username as it is in CRAB, and some former students in CRAB are not currently in Angel.
Your initial password is the first 3 letters of your last name, last 4 digits of your SSN. Once you have logged in to Angel/MyChesapeake for the first time, you need to create a new password. If you forget your password, you can get it reset at the LRC, Cambridge Center, or the reception desk in the Dorchester Building. You'll need to show ID to have your password reset. If you won't be on campus, you can call Jerry Driscoll at 410-827-5853 during normal business hours. You'll be asked for some personal data to verify your identity.
If you attended as a credit student in Fall 2008 or later, you should already have an Angel account. If you attended earlier than that, you'll need to request an Angel account if you wish to check your record on CRAB. This will give you a skipjack.chesapeake.edu email address, access to Angel, and access to CRAB. Please use the Request Angel/CRAB Account form or call Jerry Driscoll at 410-827-5853. You can also have this form emailed to you. Your account will not be created until the signed, completed form is received. You can either fax or mail the form.
Faculty and Staff:
Remember, you'll use Angel/MyChesapeake to get to CRAB. Angel also has community groups that may have important information and announcements, as well as links to on-campus files and resources.
