PARKLANDONE
ParklandOne Password Station is a password management site that allows users to sign-up, create, and manage their password which will be synced across most of the systems used at Parkland.
Please note that you will need a mobile phone with texting capability to complete the Password Station enrollment process. If you do not have one, contact the Tech Service Desk at 217/353-3333.

  1. Click here to log in to ParklandOne Password Station
  2. Enter your username.  If you are not sure what it is, click on the link that says, “What is my ParklandOne username?” The username lookup will ask for your Parkland ID number and birthdate.  If you are not sure what your Parkland ID number is, click on the link that says, “Can’t find your number?”
  3. Follow the ParklandOne enrollment process.  When prompted for your password, use your 6-digit birth date (MMDDYY), UNLESS you created a My.Parkland password in the past.  If so, you will use your My.Parkland password.  If you don't remember what it is, you will need to contact the Tech Service Desk at 217/353-3333.
