  2. Create a personal account in Prisma:
    • Go to Prisma, 
    • Select “Create personal account”
    • Select “Create personal account with SWAMID”.
    • You will then create an account which is linked to your LUCAT ID at the University. Follow the instructions on the screen.
  3. Activate your account in Prisma: Once you have created your account, you will receive an email with a username and password to activate your account. Follow the instructions in the email.
