If you try to log in to GullNet and receive a message stating that your username or password is invalid try using the GullNet Forgot My Password page to the left of the log in box. If after doing this you cannot log in contact the I.T. Helpdesk at (410) 677-5454.

  6. Can I start the evaluation and finish it at a later time?

Yes, simply click on save answers located at the end of the survey. Your answers will be saved and you can return to the evaluation at a more convenient time.  Remember you must come back to the evaluation and click submit final answers and complete the survey.

  7. How long will I receive email notifications about the course evaluations?
