  • If you have forgotten your password, at the login screen, click on Forgot my password, then select the appropriate policy on the next screen.
  • You will be prompted for your username, student number/ID and date of birth to reset passwords. Also, please keep in mind with the student policy, if the data doesn’t match an account on the network, it doesn’t tell them the system will not inform you that there wasn’t a match. Instead it goes to the next screen.To try again,  select Student Password Reset from the drop down and then click next to try again. The date must be MM/DD/YYYY including the slashes for it to find a match.
