2. "I forgot my UserID?! What do I do?"

3. "I entered my information but I still can't log on? What am I doing wrong?"

  • First, after you activate your account you MUST WAIT FIVE MINUTES! sometimes a little longer...so be patient.
  • Okay, you waited the five minutes and it won't let you get in. Passwords expire every semester, and sometimes it decides that it is the end of the semester (even if it is not), so your password might be expired.
