Have you signed up for password recovery yet?

Forgotten and expired passwords can be very frustrating!  This week you can ensure that you don't lose access to your account and be in with a chance to win print credit at the same time.

From Monday to Friday (Oct 24-28th) a daily draw will take place of all students registered on the password recovery system.  The daily prize is €20 credit on the student Equitrac print and photocopying system. 

Why sign up for password recovery?
Passwords expire after 100 days and must be changed before they expire to maintain access to your network and moodle account.

For example if you reset your password at the start of term on the 15-09-2011 and do not reset it onsite before the end of the semester your password will expire on 24-12-2011.  Since the college will be closed at this time you will be unable to get your password reset until the college re-opens in January, this potentially losing access to moodle during the Christmas break when you may want to study for exams.

Once registered for password recovery, in the event that your password expires or you forget your password, you can remotely access the web portal and reset your password.  Passwords cannot be changed without proof of identification and therefore cannot be changed by telephoning the Student Information Desk.

You can register here and recover your password here.
