Changing your password, or what to do when your password expires

Your password will expire every 90 days, requiring you to change it.

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.

To reset your password, go to the 'Password Manager' on https://passwordreset.microsoftonline.com(opens in a new tab) . Once you have changed your password for Office 365 it will give you immediate access to Student Portal, and take approximately 10 minutes to transfer over to Blackboard.

If you need more assistance logging in

If you have tried your current login details and are still having issues, try changing your password first. 

If it is more than 48 hours since your successful enrolment and you cannot recover your account using your verification email address or phone number or are still having difficulties accessing the system, call 1800 001 001 or email info@smtafe.wa.edu.au and have your student ID handy.
