Resetting Passwords

Faculty & Staff

Everyone at Swarthmore College is assigned a username and password. Accounts are created automatically for new students in the fall and spring. New faculty and staff can request an account through their new supervisor prior to arrival.

The department for which you will be working will contact HR (staff)  or the Provost Office (faculty)  to request an account be created.  Once the account is created, your hiring manager will contact you with instructions for finalizing the process.
