My Evergreen Account Quick Guide for Students
Student accounts are created automatically as soon as the student is made active in Banner, the college’s Student Information System (SIS). The source of this information is either Admissions systems or manually entered by Registration staff.
There are several steps students will need to go through to activate a new Evergreen student account. An email will be sent to the student's non-Evergreen email that we have on record, and this email will explain the steps.
- Change Password: Login to activate.evergreen.edu with the temporary username provided in the email. You will be asked to verify your identity (you will get a verification code sent to your non-Evergreen email) and asked to change your password
- Select a Username: Once your password has been changed you can choose a new Evergreen username/email based on a selection of choices. This is not set forever, you will be able to select a different username/email if you want up to 3 times per academic year.
- Login to My Evergreen: A new email will be sent to your non-Evergreen email address once our systems have processed your new username. Once you receive this email, login to my.evergreen.edu with your new username and password.

You are also added to the All Student Distribution List which may send you periodic campus emails. In addition, your account now gives you the options to • See public events and manage your schedule through Schedule Evergreen
