The typical (not all!) username consists of the first 5 letters of the last name followed by the first 3 letters of the first name, followed by a 3 digit number. Someone with a name of JOHN LEE for example will need to fill in the extra characters with spaces. In this case, John Lee with a username of LEE JOH000, will enter “L”, “E”, “E”, space, space, “J”, “O”, “H”, “0”, ”0”, “0”.

- Enter your passcode: you will be prompted to enter a 4 digit security code to open the application.
- Select the Mobile option (not the Desktop option)

- Click on the “Click here to set your password” button. This password is your unique password for Online Payments. (This may or may not be the same as your Skyward password. Since your Online Payments password and your Skyward password are different, changing one will not necessarily change the other!)

- If you do not receive an email, check your SPAM folder and add email@example.com to your safe senders list (whitelist). Use the F5 key on your keyboard to refresh your inbox.
