Password Management

When you commence your teaching, you will receive an email containing your login details. We strongly recommend you change your password immediately to a stronger password. Strong passwords don’t use word of number patters (e.g. abcd, 1234), don’t use easily obtained information (e.g. your name, birth date, initials) and include at least 8 characters (including one number, an uppercase and lowercase letter).

Never share your password. We will never contact you by phone or email and request your password. Do not give your password to anyone claiming to be a Navitas or College staff member. This includes email messages that ask you to click on a link to log into your account.

If you forget your password or need it reset, there is an online password reset tool available and the IT Help Desk is here to help during business hours.
