If you are returning to Athens State University, your PIN has not changed since you last accessed the system. If you cannot get in to Banner Self-Service/do not remember your PIN, please contact the Help Desk.

4. If 48 hours have passed since you received your acceptance letter, and you have logged in to Banner Self-Service to discover your email information you can use those credentials to log in to your email account for the first time. You will be asked to supply authentication information which will only be used to help you gain access to your account in the event that you forget your password. You can also take this opportunity to install the Microsoft Office 365 suite on your computer. It is compatible with Windows and macOS.
