Getting Started for Students
SSE Riga account
When starting your studies at SSE Riga you will be given an SSE Riga account username and password that you will use for SSE Riga IT systems – e-mail, E-Learning, printing, Office365 account and more.
Your SSE Riga account username is NSurname, where
N - the first letter of your name
Surname - your surname/last name
This naming convention is used for all students unless specified otherwise.
Your SSE Riga e-mail address is: NSurname@sseriga.edu, where
NSurname - your username as described above.
For more information about your SSE Riga e-mail, visit How To - E-mail.
For all SSE Riga IT systems, you will always have the same password. You can change your SSE Riga account password at any time. You should change your initial password, obtained at the start of your studies, as soon as possible.
For more information about changing your password, visit How to - Change Password.
You will also be assigned an SSE Riga student ID number. This student ID will be used whenever anonymous information is posted (course results etc.) so you should keep your student ID private.
Your SSE Riga Student ID is in the format AYYYXXX, where
A - your study programme (B for BSc, M for EMBA)
YYY - the year of your start of studies
XXX - a unique number string
Separate from your SSE Riga account, BSc students will also have an account for LAIS grade database. This database is used for your official study records as well as registering for Elective courses.
For more information about LAIS, visit How To - LAIS.
Student ID card
At the start of your studies at SSE Riga you will also receive a student ID card. This card will be used as a proof of your identity during any SSE Riga examinations, as well as an entrance card for entering the school building outside of regular working hours and, for dormitories residents, as an entrance card to SSE Riga dormitories.
Apart from this, your SSE Riga student ID card will also function as a regular ISIC card, making you eligible for all ISIC discounts and promotions.
For more information about ISIC cards, visit How To - ISIC.
SSE Riga IT Infrastructure and Systems
SSE Riga E-Learning platform will contain all your courses, assignments and course materials, as well as information from the school administration about study life and processes.

Your SSE Riga Google account will, for almost all practical purposes, act as an ordinary Google account, including access to Google services:
Communication with staff, faculty and fellow students
Your SSE Riga e-mail address will be active only while you are a student at SSE Riga. Do not use this address for services you want to use after finishing your studies
Cloud storage for study materials
It is a good idea to use some form of cloud storage (Google Drive, Dropbox, OneDrive, etc.) for your study materials to avoid technical issues causing missed deadlines.
