Username & Password Issues

  • What is my username?
    Your user name is your Student or Employee ID number (often starts with 3000, 2000 or 107). This number is recorded on your UFV Student/Employee card.

  • What is my password?
    If this is your first time logging in, your password is the six numbers of your birthdate, in the format YYMMDD where YY is the last two digits of the year,
    MM is the numeric month, and DD is the day of your birthdate. 
    For example, 16 April, 1956 is 560416.

    Once you have successfully logged in the first time, you will receive a message explaining that your password has expired and to choose a new password. 

    : your new password must be exactly 6 numbers long.
