Trouble Logging In?
Are you a New student who cannot login to your jcpsnj account?
New student and continuously enrolled student accounts have been updated in the Google instructional domain. You can sign in to your account with your temporary password
The temporary password for the new student accounts and those students that have not logged
in during the summer break (since July 1st) has been set to a default password. Please check with your school and they can provide you with that.
New accounts are required to accept the Google Cloud Platform Acceptable Use Policy immediately after logging in for the first time. Once they do, they will be prompted to set a
secure/confidential password consisting of at least 8 alphanumeric characters.
Are you an existing active Student? 
Active student accounts, (those who had recently logged in over summer ) were not reset. However, there could be several reasons that you are not able to login.
If you are an existing/active student and cannot currently login please follow these instructions:
  • Check your password carefully.
  • Try login with your default or confidentially set password
  • If authentication fails, then get in touch with your teachers/admins. Ask them to contact the IT helpdesk and we will manually reset your credentials
Reset accounts will be prompted to set a secure/confidential password consisting of at least 8 alphanumeric characters.
