Setting up your challenge questions

After you found out your Ferris Computing ID and initial, temporary password from this site: http://www.ferris.edu/idlookup, you can then start the process to set up the new password reset tool.

The first step to set up the tool is to set up your challenge questions on the new site.  To do this, follow the instructions below:

When you go to the tool at https://pwdsetup.ferris.edu, a pop-up box will appear for you to log in with your Ferris Computing ID and the initial, temporary password. Be sure to include the @student.local after the username.
