Student Password Requests


To define how usernames and passwords are provided to students.





User passwords are not distributed by telephone as per FERPA guidelines and information security best practices.  Usernames and passwords are distributed only through the processes outlined below.





  • All usernames and passwords are generated automatically by Colleague.  A student must be entered into Colleague in order for a username and password to be generated.
  • 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.




Additional Information:

Username and password lists will not be generated for any department or agency, Worcester State College or otherwise, effective July 6, 2006.
