  • If you have your Evergreen password saved on any device (such as a smartphone, tablet or home computer) be sure to update the password on those devices.
  • The old password can cause you to get locked out of your account.
    • Example: if you check your email on your phone and don’t have to type in your password each time you have a saved password. The phone will keep trying the old saved password and after 5 failed attempts your account will be locked for 5 minutes as a security measure before it lets you try again.
  • If you need additional assistance please contact the faculty and staff helpdesk at 360 867-6627 or email at
