The SBA Technology Department are the ONLY ONES who can reset email passwords
Use the “Can’t access your account?” link and the "I don't know my password" option, which will direct you to a page with up to three recovery options:
Get a verification code sent to your mobile device.
Request a password reset email to be sent to your recovery account.
Answer your security question and perform an on-line password reset.
Proceed to the Account Recovery Form. Look for a "Verify your identity" link if the other options don't work.
NOTE: If you change your email password in one computer or device, you will have to change the password in any other device that automatically logs you in, such as an iPad.
If the student ever forgets their password go see
