Why 5 Security Questions?
  • Don't worry; we won't ever ask you to answer all 5 questions to claim your password.  If you forget your password, the system will ask you to answer 2 of the 5 questions.  If you can't remember your answers to those 2, we still have another 3 questions we can offer up, which greatly increases your chances of remembering your answers--and thus being able to reclaim your password and get back to business.
  • Ideally, you should choose questions and answers that other people don't readily know.  (For example, if everyone knows about your amazing dog, Rover, we recommend not choosing the question that asks your pet's name.)

Idaho State University (ISU) is transitioning from BengalWeb to MyISU and introducing a new, personalized MyISU Portal. For more information about the new portal, please visit the MyISU Information page. Need help? Contact the IT Service Desk at (208) 282-HELP (4357) or chat.
