Self-Service Password Reset (SSPR) Registration


Self-Service Password Reset (SSPR) allows AACC students and employees to reset a forgotten password, without relying on assistance from the Technical Service Desk.  SSPR will soon be available to the AACC community due to IIT's efforts implementing Microsoft’s Cloud Single Sign-on Solution. 

Azure SSPR was implemented on September 8, 2023.  

All employees and students signing in to MyAACC after September 8 will be prompted to set up or confirm their SSPR sign-in methods.  If you don't have time to set up SSPR, you can select "Skip setup" to set up SSPR at another time. However, if you skip set up, each time you sign in to MyAACC, you'll receive the prompt "More information required." 

AACC's existing Password Management Tool will continue to be utilized for account activations, password changes, and forgotten passwords.  


Check out the following video for detailed instructions for registering for Self Service Password Reset. Written instructions are also included below.

When you sign in to the MyAACC Portal on or after 9/8/23, you will receive a prompt stating "More information required."  Select Next.

Set up Microsoft Authenticator by selecting Next OR choose a different option by selecting I want to set up a different method.  You may also select Skip setup to set up your sign-in methods later.  Skip setup can be selected indefinitely.  

  • Sign-in Methods:
    • Microsoft Authenticator (recommended)
