Please be sure to protect the security of your JagID and password.
To initiate this access, you will need to log into password.augusta.edu, you will be prompted to set a new password and answer security questions. If you experience login issues, please reset your password. If the issue persists, contact the IT helpdesk at 706-721-4000.
