University of Divinity Login and Password Guide

This document shows University members how to:

  1. Set/Reset your password – if you do not know your password either as it has not been set or has been forgotten, a new password is generated and sent to your email account that is used for login purposes
  2. Change your password – allows you to change your own password from one that you know to another.

Each member of the University receives a University of Divinity account which allows them to access the following systems using the same username and password.

All passwords are (re)set or changed in the University’s Student Management System called Paradigm. For convenience, the ARK homepage has links for resetting and changing your password (the first link is to this guide).
