SRJC Password Portal

SRJC Password Portal is a Self-Service Password Reset (SSPR) application which allows SRJC District Employees to reset their SRJC account without having to call the IT Help Desk. SSPR uses alternative methods for authentication, such as a phone number, alternate e-mail address, and/or security questions.

The SSPR portal should be used if you are experiencing any of the following SRJC account issues:

  • Forgotten password
  • Password has expired
  • Account is locked due to too many incorrect attempts

Before you can take advantage of the features of SSPR, you will need to self-enroll. See the Password Self-Service Enrollment Guide below for a step-by-step walkthrough.
