Password Assistance


When you become a student at Saddleback College, the application process gives you a student id. During the application process you are asked to select a 4 digit PIN. Please make sure you write that down. For some people, this could be the last 4 digits of their social security number. Others may choose their birthday (month and year). Either way, you must remember it. If you have forgotten it, go to Admissions and Records with a photo ID and they can look it up for you.

When you apply, you have the option of selecting a preferred email account over your Saddleback Account.   Further information regarding Student Technical Support can be found at the Student Technical Support page Instructions can be found by clicking here


Once you are hired, the default password is your last 4 digits of your social security number followed by 2 zeros. You can change your password by logging onto a computer and holding the CTL ALT DEL keys and then click change a password. This will reset your Network logon password.  Employees can contact Technology Services for password resets. Dial 4600

Email accounts are automatically set up for full-time employees. Part-time employees will need to do a work order to have an Exchange Account set up for them.
