Use this guide below to reset your forgotten password yourself.
- Go to UMICH Account Management (for forgotten passwords).

- Provide either your date of birth or your UMID number, and then click Submit.
- On the Get a Code page, you will see the account recovery information you provided in the past. It will be partially masked for your security. If you entered both a mobile phone number and an email address, you will need to choose which of the two you want your password reset code sent to. Select or confirm where you want to receive the password reset code, then click Submit.

If you have not received a code in one hour, and you had it sent to your non-UMICH email address, check your email junk or spam folders. If the code is not there, phone the ITS Service Center at 734-764-HELP (4357) for a password reset. You will be taken to the Change Password page in UMICH Account Management, where you can set a new password.
- You may not set your new password to the same thing as your current password. If you attempt to change a forgotten password to your current (forgotten) password, an error message will display and you will need to enter a new password.

How to set up Wolverine Access friend account
The most frequent use of Friend accounts is to allow parents or others access to pay student bills; the student must authorize access before the account holder can log in.
To set up a Friend account, you will need a non-university email address (one that does not end in “umich.edu”). You will receive an email at that address as part of the account creation setup, and this is done to verify that you own that email address.
- Go to Request a Friend Account.
- Enter your non-university email address, then click Request.
- You will see a Message Sent screen letting you know that a message has been sent to the email address you provided with further instructions.
- Open your email and look for a message from firstname.lastname@example.org. Check your spam or junk mail folder if you don’t see the message.
- In that message, click the Create Friend Account link.
- Clicking the link will take you to the Create a Friend Account webpage.
- Enter your email address, the same one you used in Step 2 above.
- Enter and re-enter the password you want to use for your Friend account.
- Click Set Password.
- A confirmation screen lets you know that your Friend account has been created.
- You will also receive an email message confirming the creation of your Friend account and providing you with information about it. Check your spam or junk mail folder if you don’t see the message.
