First Time Student Login Credentials

Your username corresponds to your Student ID number (don't' forget the S); while your default password is composed by the word Student followed by your birthdate in the format MMDDYYYY. 

You will be asked to change the password upon the first login and will have to enter a new password\passphrase of at least 14 characters with a mix of uppercase, lowercase, numbers and/or special characters. Do not use any parts of your name in your password\passphrase. If parts of your name match the word student, then your default password will have the word Password instead of the word Student.
