Now you will need to fill out personal information, such as a secondary email address and security questions, that you will need to remember and have access throughout your whole A-State experience. This information will help you recover information, reset your password, unlock your account and more. Once you have fill everything out, click Submit.

  • At least eight characters long
  • At least one number
  • At least one lowercase letter
  • At least one uppercase letter
  • Cannot start with a number
  • Cannot contain any symbols i.e. (&#*@)
  • Cannot contain your name or username
  • Cannot match any of your previous passwords.

8. After this, you will come to a new screen with more terms and conditions. You will need to select I Authorize or I Do Not Authorize depending on your answer. If you are under 18 years old, you will need to type in your parent's name. Once everything is filled out, you can  select your answer and then click Submit

9. Once you do this, if you see a screen similar to this one with your username and email address listed, this means you have successfully created your A-State password and set up your account. If you do not see a screen like this but instead see a password error message, you will need to start all of these steps over from the beginning and choose a different password. If you received an account error message, this means you A-State account has not finished being created yet. Please check back in 24 hours and try these steps again.
