In New York, each and every city public school student possesses a “DOE Email Account” which gets created automatically when a student enrolls in school, and it remains as long as a student remains in school (basically does their schooling).
[Note: Doe Email is also popularly known as NYC Department of Education account, in short NYCDoE account.]
With NYCDoE email account, students can access all the available DOE technology platforms including the following:
The process for doing the same is pretty simple and even a kid in pre-school can understand it with ease.
As mentioned above, the Doe email account for students gets by default created by their respective NYC school. So, if you’re a NYC Student and wondering if I need to sign up for Doe Email Platform then, let us tell you that you need not have to create an account separately.
Instead, you can easily get started with your account using your username and a password that your school must have given you.
Note: Once you have your username and password, you can start using them for signing in to your DOE email account and other DOE applications.
[Note: Those who don’t know, the best way to start using your DOE account is to sign in to TeachHub as you need to sign in once to access all DOE applications from here with just one click.]
In order to access your Doe account and Doe emails, you simply need to follow these steps for login—
[Note: It provides you access to educational platforms, GSuite, Zoom, Student Report Cards, and much more.]
In addition to this, it is worth mentioning that your school must have given you a “Generic password” for signing in to your Doe email account so, it is necessary on your behalf to change it to something strong and unique enough that seems hard to guess.
Considering the above recommendation in mind, if you want to change your account password that will give your account more safety and security, then here are the instructions that help you to change your own password—
[Password Creation Tip: While creating new password, don’t use spaces, don’t use common letter or number patterns (e.g. AABB, 1234), don’t repeat characters or letters more than once (e.g. AAAA, 000), don’t use previous passwords and remember that your password should contain a number in addition to both capital & lowercase letters. Also, it must be at least 8 characters long and make sure you create/pick something that you can remember for longer.]
[Note: To help you create a strong password, a strength bar is shown to you and if there are any breaches of password policy, the same gets highlighted with an exclamation mark & message so that you can correct the mistake you made.]

Now, no wonder you’ll have an amazing Doe emailing experience but, if you ever encounter DOE issues while login to your account then, what you can consider doing is- resetting your account password for successful login.
It is worth mentioning that, there’s not one or two but a total of three different ways that you can use to reset your DOE password, and they are as follows:
If you consider this way then, here are the steps to be followed to reset your password—
[Note: Through the Password and Profile Management tool, you can manage i.e., you can change as well as reset your password and also other DOE account information.]
[Note: You can use the Student Self-Service tool to reset your password only if you have created a PIN or set up security questions as you need them while resetting your password. However, if you haven’t done that yet, you can either look upon the other two listed ways, or you can see “How to Create a PIN | Set up Security Questions” section below.
So, this is how through this method, you can easily reset your own password once every 30 days.
First of all know that, as a NYC School Student, your DOE account is set automatically by your school but, it doesn’t have or create a PIN for your account rather you’ve to create a PIN yourself. So, follow these steps in order to create a PIN for your Doe Email account—
After this, an email will be sent to your DOE email to confirm that you have created a PIN for your account.
[Note: Though, PINs are optional for a Doe account, but you should have it otherwise you will not be able to use the self-service tool to reset your password and then, as already said, you’re left with only two options for resetting your password and i.e., either through NYSCA or through Reset Student Account Passwords page.]
Now, just like a PIN, security questions are also not by default, not set up. Instead, you themselves have to set them up using these set of instructions—
As you do so, an email will be sent to your DOE email to confirm that you have set up security questions for your account.
So, this is how you can create a PIN and set up security questions for your DOE email account to be eligible in future for using the Student Self-Service tool to reset your password in circumstances like you’ve forgotten your password or when you suspect that your account security has been compromised.
In this way, you can consider your parent or guardian to help you reset your password. To be precise, Parent or Guardian can simply reset your student/child’s password in NYSCA (NYC Schools Account) portal by following these instructions—
So, this is how easily your password has been reset by your parents or guardian.
However, here also there’s a condition and i.e., your parent or guardian must have a NYSCA account first and only then, they can reset your password on your behalf. So, considering that not every parent or guardian has a NYSCA account, let us tell you that if they don’t have a NYSCA account, they can create one easily by clicking the ‘Create New Account’ on the NYSCA Portal that too, for absolutely free.
