Student User Name and Password Requirements

When you add a student to a class or reset a student password, you must follow these user name and password requirements.


  • Student name — Enter the student's last name first, then the student's first name.
  • Username — User names can be simple.
    • Must be unique
    • Must be at least 8 characters but not more than 75.
    • You can use letters, numbers, underscores, periods, blank spaces, and the @ symbol.
    • User names are not case-sensitive.
  • Password — Passwords must be more complex for security.
    • Must be at least 8 characters.
    • Must contain at least one letter and one number or special character.
    • Must NOT contain spaces.
    • Passwords are case-sensitive
    • Do not make a password similar to a student's first name, last name or username
