Setting Your Password
Before you can use your accounts, you must change the password! Students currently have two accounts that access different systems.
To change your passwords online:
- For your TTU domain account(for Live@edu and iLearn)
- Go to the Change your TTU domain password page
- Enter your campus username.
- Enter your old password. Initially this is your Tech Banner ID (T number)
- Enter your new password in both the New Password and Confirm Password boxes.
- Click the Change Now button.
Initially, the password to your these accounts is set to your TTU Banner ID (T number).
Selecting a Password
Decide on what you want your password to be. Choose a password of 6 or more characters, using letters, digits, and special characters. Your password is CASE SENSITIVE so whether a character is typed as a capital or small letter matters to the system. Be sure the CAPS lock is off. Do not use common English words found in the dictionary. You could use the first letters of a phrase with some numbers, such as "I am here to Learn until # 2012!" which would make your password: iahtLu#2012! For more information view the TTU Password Policy.
Forgot your password?
- If you have forgotten your password or having difficulties logging in:
- Come to the Help Desk (phone: (931) 372-3975) in Clement Hall 313 lab (open days and evenings - see lab schedule)
- Monday through Friday from 8:00 am to 11:00 pm come to the glass window--Clement Hall 226 or call (931) 372-3388.
