Logging into Connect

Before getting started, you need to get into the system! Your administrator will create an account for you in Connect. Once they have done this, you will receive an email within a couple of minutes. Remember that the link within this email will expire after 48 hours so it is important to complete the steps to set up your account as soon as possible otherwise the email will need to be resent.

Logging into Connect is quick and simple. Once an account has been set up for you, you will receive an email with a link to set up your password. Follow these easy steps to log in for the first time.
