Did You Forget Your Password?
When the account was originally set up, you were required to select between 3 and 5 security questions and provide answers to the questions selected. You can reset your password if you can remember the answers you provided to the security questions you selected. You will receive a message in blue at the top right corner "An email has been sent" if you answer the questions correctly. An email from firstname.lastname@example.org consisting of a token will be emailed to the email address on file if you properly answer the questions.
You must use the exact same syntax and spelling as you originally provided. If your questions was What is the birth day of your Mother? and your answer was Aug. 12th, then 8/12 is not the correct answer nor is Aug 12th (missing a period). Only Aug. 12th will be the correct answer.
The email token is good for 1 day only. After that you must request a new password reset. The email token can be clicked only once. After it has been used, it is no longer useable.
In order to have the email token sent to your email address, first click on the Forgot Password? link on the login page as illustrated below.
