    Student Username and Password Changes

    RETURNING SPS Students:
    The 3 letter prefix and underscore will be replaced by the number 1. 
    For example, BAL_jrsmith becomes 1jrsmith
    If you had numbers at the end of your username, for example, BAL_jrsmith002, the new format will remove the leading ‘0’s and, in this example, your new username will be: 1jrsmith2.
    If you remember your password, it will still work. If you have forgotten your password, please scroll to the If you forgot your student password section below.  If you are unable to reset your password, please contact your school for assistance.

    Your school will provide your username and default password. Your initial log in must be done at school.  If you need to log in before classes begin, please contact your school for assistance.
