IST has transitioned to a centralized password for all systems meaning that you will only have ONE password for all systems. The MyID solution not only simplifies how you access your Bluefield College accounts but it also helps to protect our user's identity information, much in the way banks and online retailers also strive to protect your personal information through the use of Q&A profiles.
In addition, MyID provides you with the ability to reset their own passwords and gain access to their accounts if they forget their password. Even though IST has traditionally responded very quickly, users are able to now perform this on demand which can be a great relief for students when they are needing in at a particular point in time. All of this helps us not only with security but with our accreditation principles, particularly core requirement 4.8.x.
Once you are enrolled as a student or employed by the College, you will be provided information about registering your account with MyID. The tutorial below will walk you through MyID step-by-step.
