Password Registration Portal


The Joliet Junior College Information Security department, in conjunction with the Information Technology Division has implemented a new identity and access management solution. The powerful combination of the password registration and reset portal allows users to easily enroll in self-service password reset. The solution is device agnostic.  Students, faculty and staff will now have the ability to access the portal on any device using any operating system.

On this page we will cover how to submit the questions and answers that you will need during password recovery in the Password Reset Portal.
