First-time Users: Logging In

When you access the SWS for the first time, you must login using your student number and your PIN (Personal Identification Number). Your initial six-digit PIN is your year, month and day of birth in YYMMDD format (e.g., April 23, 1993 = 930423). As soon as you have logged in using your birth date PIN, you will be prompted to select a new PIN. You have to select a new PIN only once. You will also be asked to complete a questionnaire that helps you reset your PIN in case you forget it in the future.
