  2. Your password is your birthday. If your birthday falls between January and September, do not include the leading zero in the 6-digit birth date.  Example: If your birthday is January 23, 1977, your password would be 12377.  
  3. If you changed your PIN from your birth date to a four-digit number, you will have to add a 0 to the beginning of the four-digit pin to access the Financial Aid Student Portal.  Example: If your current PIN is 6732, it will become 06732.
