  • It can take up to twenty-four hours for a username and password to be generated.
  • Students are mailed a document that contains their usernames and passwords one working day after they have been entered into Colleague.
  • Students also may obtain their original usernames and passwords, or reset their passwords, by visiting the College's website.
