STEP 1: Identify your user name and password
To access online tools, you will need to have reset your password on your TAFE login. This ensures your account is provisioned adequately with all your tools ready to go.
Following your enrolment you would have been sent an email with your account details (login and password) which will provide access to SM TAFE systems including student email, Office 365, Blackboard, Student Portal and Library systems.
If you haven't received an email, please check your junk mail folder, and look for an email from 'DTWD'. The email cannot be reissued as it is automated by your enrolment status in our systems. If you believe your email has been lost, you can try to use your login details as:
User Name: SM TAFE Student ID number
(Replace DDMMYYYY with your date of birth)
For example, if your Student ID is 30000123 and your default Office 365 password is your birth date of 1 January 1972 your Student Portal logon details would be:
User Name: 30000123
If you need help finding your student ID, talk to your lecturer, or call 1800 001 001, email email@example.com.
STEP 2: Provision your account in Office 365
Use the button below to access Office 365, and enter your TAFE email address. If prompted, select Company or School Account and then enter your password.
STEP 3: Change your password
After your first login, you will be prompted to change your password. This is essential for setting up your account correctly. Your new password needs to include three of the following character types: upper case letter, lower case letter, numbers, symbols and must be at least eight characters long.
