- Tap on “Forgot your login / password?” Enter the email address you have on file with your student’s school. Tap “Submit.” Click “OK.”
- Check your email. Open the email from firstname.lastname@example.org “Forgotten Login/Password Assistance.”
- Write down your Login. This is your Skyward username. It is usually the first 5 letters of your last name followed by the first 3 letters of your first name followed by 3 numbers like ‘000’ (zero, zero, zero).
- Tap on the link in the email to reset your account password.
- Think of a password that is 10-15 characters long. Include at least one letter, one number and one special character like “!”, “@”, “#”. (Here is an example of a password – “Bienvenid0s!”) Type your new password. Type it again to confirm your new password. Tap “Submit.”
