All you need to organise your study life is in Office 365 – it’s built to be a place you can store your work and share with staff and colleagues when you need to. It’s also really important to log in regularly to check your timetable, read important announcements and official correspondence from us.
How to access Office 365
To access online tools, you will need to have reset your password on your new TAFE login. This ensures your account is provisioned adequately with all your tools ready to go. To reset your password, Use the instructions emailed to you or find instructions on our website and go first to Office365.
You’ll need to update your password with us every 90 days so it’s a good idea to use reliable phone or backup email address as verification contacts on your Office 365 account. This will also provide you an easy way to reset your own password without needing to access SM TAFE support.
If you withdraw from all your units your account will be shut within 24 to 48 hours. We recommend saving your files before withdrawal.
