First-time Users:  Logging In

When you access the SWS for the first time, you must login using your student number and your PIN (Personal Identification Number). Your initial six-digit PIN is your year, month and day of birth in YYMMDD format (e.g., April 23, 1980 = 800423). As soon as you have logged in using your birth date PIN, you will be prompted to select a new PIN. You have to select a new PIN only once. You will also be asked to complete a questionnaire that helps you reset your PIN in case you forget it (see PIN reactivation).

  • Once you have logged in, the session will remain active until YOU log out or the system finds it inactive. The SWS allows one minute between asking for information and receiving it. If it is not received, it assumes you wish to terminate the session. If you begin a transaction and hesitate for one minute or more while you are looking up information, you will get a message indicating you have been timed out.

Maintain your PIN

  • change your PIN

PIN Reactivation

You no longer need to go into your College Registrar's office to reset your PIN if you forget - just set yourself up for PIN reactivation. When you log onto ROSI, you'll be prompted to set it up. You will be presented with a list of questions; of these, you must answer three. Choose questions and answers you are not likely to forget.

If, after setting up for PIN reactivation, your access to the SWS is suspended or you forget your PIN, you can select the "PIN Reactivation" button from the login page of the SWS. Upon successfully answering two randomly selected questions (of the three you answered during the setup process), you can reset your own PIN and log back in to the SWS.
