This article is a step-by-step walk through for resetting the password for your TTU Domain Account through the self-reset portal located at https://IDme.tntech.edu.  The TTU domain account is the account you will use for your campus email, iLearn, the parking portal, and other directory-reliant services. (This does not cover Eagle Online as that uses a separate account)

A full in-depth guide can be found at here 


You are required to register for the IDMe portal before you can reset your password. Instructions on that can be found here (future link to published site).

You will need the following available:

  • Your Mobile Authenticator on your Smartphone

Resetting your Password through the IDMe Password Portal

1. Navigate to the IDMe Password Portal located here https://IDme.tntech.edu

*The page should read "Tennessee Tech Password Portal"

2. Enter your username (juser, jouser42, jouser21, etc.) and your current password, and then press "Login".

*If you don't know your username, visit the page Find Your TTU Username

*If you're logging into the password portal for the first time, or your password has been recently reset by ITS, your password will be set to the default value. This default is 'z?T#' where the # is the eight digits of your Tech ID (T-number). For instance, if your T-number is T00001234, your initial password will be z?T00001234.

3.  You will be brought to the Account Management menu. You will see the option to change your password under the Account Details & Activity>Password Expires On:>Change Now.
