Unlock your College account

Your College account will become locked if a computer, cell phone, or person attempts to log on with your user name and fails multiple times. If you know what caused your account to become locked and have corrected the issue, please wait 30 minutes and try to log on again.

If you have recently changed your password and are not sure why your account is locked, please verify that you have updated your password in the following commonly overlooked places:

  • Cell phone Wi‑Fi password
  • Cell phone email account password
  • Laptop Wi‑Fi password

NOTE: Failing to update the password stored in these locations will result in a continuously locked account until you resolve the issue.

If your account remains locked after following the above instructions, email with a personal email address, and provide:

  • Your name
  • Student/Employee number
  • Detailed description of your issue
  • The steps you have taken to resolve the issue

Please be advised that this email address is not monitored evenings, weekends, statutory holidays, or College holidays.
