In the User ID box, type your Cognos/eSchool username.  Do not include the APSCN or any \ symbols.  (i.e. 1703jdoe):


Click the “OK” button:





Within a few minutes you should receive an email from "noreply.sso@arkansas.gov" which will contain a 6-digit code that you will need to reset your password.


In the Username box, type your eSchool userame (i.e. 1703jdoe)  Do not include the APSCN or any \ symbols.

ADE requires you to pick a password that is at least 20 characters long, contains at least 1 uppercase letter, 1 lowercase letter and 1 number.  It can not contain any symbols.  You cannot use three or more consecutive letters from your first or last name as part of your password, and you cannot reuse one of your six most recently used passwords.


Once the system accepts your newly chosen password, you should be able to sign in to either Cognos and eSchool using this new password
