Q: I'm having trouble logging in. Can you help?


Common login issues:

  • Do not use your email address as the username. Only include your ETSU username. 
  • Avoid using autofill or password managers to log in. These programs may have an old password stored which will prevent you from logging in. 
  • Repeated login attempts will lock your account.

Don't know or need to reset your ETSU password?

It says I'm locked out. What do I do?

  • When an account is locked, the timeout can last up to 30 minutes. 
  • Do not try to log in again during this timeout period. This will only reset the timer.
  • Library staff can not override the locked account timer. This is a security measure implemented by the vendor.
  • If you do not remember your password, use the link mentioned above to reset it. 
    • NOTE: Resetting your ETSU password during this timeframe will not clear the lock. You will still need to wait 30 minutes before trying to log in.
