... How do I log into Portal?{expander}

In the upper right corner of the Northark Portal, enter your username and password.

  • Username = First Initial + Last Name + Last 3 digits of Student ID
  • Password = "p-" + Student ID + Last 2 digits of birth year
  • Example: John Doe ID# 123456 born 1955 = jdoe456, p-12345655

Note: If John Doe should have the suffix "Jr" then the following would occur:

  • Username = jdoejr456

Long-time students may have changed their password or would not have the "p-" preface.

All students are encouraged to change their password for better security through Microsoft's online self-service. This can be done at any time at your discretion.
