Trouble logging on to Forum? We can help.

If you are a returning user (you've logged on before) and are having trouble logging on (your password or email address is not recognized), please notify us right away. Our contact information for help resetting your Forum log-in information: alumni@grinnell.edu, or 866-850-1846.

 

If you have signed on before, here are the steps you should follow:

1) Click on the red Log-in button in the upper right corner of the "Welcome to Forum" page (http://forum.grinnell.edu/).

2) In the window that opens for logging in, enter your email address in the space provided for your email address (this must be your preferred email address that you have on file with us).

3) Then enter your password in the space provided for your password. 

4) Then click on the white LOG IN button just below these spaces. Logging in will take you to your profile page. From there, you can go to any other page in Forum by clicking in the menus. To go back to your profile page, choose the "My Grinnell" option in the horizontal menu that runs along the top of each page. 

 

If you haven't signed on before, here are the steps you should follow:

1) Click on the red Log-in button in the upper right corner of the "Welcome to Forum" page (http://forum.grinnell.edu/).

2) Click on the "Don't have your Grinnell account yet?" link right under the log-in spaces asking for your email and password (don't type anything into those spaces, as you don't have your password yet).

3) In the next window that comes up, you will be prompted for your email address. This email address must be the preferred address you have on record with us. If you are unsure what that is, please contact us.

4) After you've submitted your email address, check your email--you should receive your one-time registration password that's good for 24 hours. However, if you do not receive your password by then, or if you simply want a real person and not a computer to get you set up, just give us a call or send us an email during our regular business hours. (If you don't see our email in your in box, you might want to check your junk or spam box in case your email account misdirected it there.)

5) Log on using your complete email address and the one-time registration password we sent you. Then be sure to change your password in your profile settings. When viewing your profile, you should see a menu tab, in the row of menu tabs below your name, called SETTINGS. Click on the SETTINGS tab, and when this field opens, scroll down to the spaces for Password and Confirm password. Type in the password of your choice in both places, then scroll to the bottom of the page and click on the SAVE button.

6) From then on, you use your email address (the complete address) and your new password (the one you chose) to log on.
