Your A-B Tech username and password are used to log into your email account, campus computers, Moodle, WebAdvisor, and more.
Unless you have been told otherwise, your A-B Tech username is your first name, middle initial, and last name (with no spaces). Example: janehdoe
Your email address is your username followed by @students.abtech.edu. Example: firstname.lastname@example.org
In some cases, like logging into Outlook, you will need to log in using your email address instead of your username.
Your default A-B Tech password is your date of birth in MMDDYY format. Example: if your birthday is 10/20/1979, your default password is 102079.
Change Your Password
You should immediately change your A-B Tech password from its default! There are two steps to changing your password:
- Enroll at Office 365® by adding contact information or linking an authenticator app to your account.
- Change your password through Office 365®.
Visit the Password Reset page to begin, and visit the Tutorial: "How to Change Your Password" page on InfoBase for more information.
If you have already enrolled at Office 365®, you can reset your password using the Microsoft® Online Password Reset site. Enter your A-B Tech email address when asked for the User ID. If you are told that you cannot change your password and that you should contact your system administrator, you are not enrolled.
If you have not already enrolled at Office 365®, please contact the HelpDesk.
