How to access your Triton portal
Staff and Students will use the MyTriton Portal for registration, grades, class rosters, degree audit and more.
MyTriton Student Accounts
Students, to have your account created you will need to complete a Triton College application and have completed your Triton College placement tests or have provided documentation of an equivalent completion. After your account is created you should receive an email with your username and your password.
Usernames will be formatted as follows:
First name + last email@example.com
For example: John Smith would be firstname.lastname@example.org
Note that if the username is already in use, a number may be added or a shortened version may be provided; use the username exactly as it appears in the e-mail.
Passwords will be formatted as follows:
First letter of your firstname + first three letters of your lastname + birth date in a six digit month, day, year format
For example: John Smith’s birthday is on July 1, 1990, so his password would appear as jsmi070190
Your default password will be emailed to you. Once you log into the portal for the first time, you should change your password by using the "Change Password" link in the quick links located on the right side of the portal.
*If you do not receive an e-mail with your username and password, or are unsure of your account information, you can visit the Welcome Desk, use the Account Lookup link by clicking the button below, or contact the Call Center at (708) 456-0300, Ext. 3130.

Account Look Up and Password Reset
For username verification or to reset your password, click the "Look Up Account/Reset Password" button and complete the following steps:
- Enter your legal last name
- Enter your full social security number (no dashes, ex. 123121234)
- If you know your colleague ID you may enter that number in the Colleague ID field
- Click submit
Upon clicking submit, your username will display. If you just want to confirm your username without resetting your password, you can stop there. If you would like to continue to reset your password, you must select an e-mail address in a drop down and then click submit, and a new password will be emailed to you.
Logging Off of the Portal
Logging off of the portal is important, especially when using a public computer.
To log off of the portal:
Navigate to the upper right corner and click the arrow displayed next to your name. Once the arrow is clicked, a menu will display, navigate to the "Sign Out" option and click.
Once you click "Sign Out" in the menu, a new page will load, indicating that the user must close the browser to complete the sign out. Be absolutely sure to exit the browser to ensure that you are logged out of the portal. Users must completely close all browser windows.
