Student Logon/Password Change (August 2020)

Every TUSD student has an Office 365 account that has been set up for them. They can access their account by going to

portal.office.com, clicking Sign in (top right), and then doing the following:
  1. Enter < matric@s.tusd1.org > (without the < >) in the spot where it says "Email, Phone, Skype."
    Students' matric number is their student ID number.

  2. Upon entering this information, you will be taken to the TUSD sign in page. Your student's username will be the same matric@s.tusd1.org they used at the log-in screen, and their password is the same password they log in with at school.
    Students have to make sure they include the "s." after @ in the username: matric@s.tusd1.org.

Student Log-In and Password Information - 2020-2021 School Year

Start of School Password Change Not Required

Please note: the change password steps below may not work for all students. Fortunately, if students are having difficulty changing their password, they don't have to change it right now. If they have a password that is working, they can continue to use that for the time being. We will not require a password change until later in the month and will keep everyone apprised before that happens.

If students would rather change their password right away, they can use this direct link: https://sts.tusd1.org/adfs/portal/updatepassword/.  If they are going to use this link, they should be aware that it may take up to 5 minutes for the new password to work for Clever and Microsoft Office.
