Resetting Student Passwords

Students are able to reset their password from home but they must have both a PSD device and access to the Always-on VPN, called Poudre VPN.

1. To reset from home, ensure the computer has already been logged in, then press CTRL + ALT + DEL.

2. You will see an option to "Change a password", click this. 

3. You will need to enter the Old password, then the New password, before confirming the New password. 

4. Press the arrow pointing to the right to confirm and change the password. 

5. You're all set!

 

Again, if you have any questions, or something isn't working quite right, please reach out to your school for further assistance.
