Answer:

The Lost Password link is only for those who self-registered an account at Campus or Catalog.  If you perhaps used your Google or Microsoft accounts when you first logged in, then you must continue to use those login buttons for subsequent logins.  If this still does not work for you, then contact our help desk using one of the methods described at the top of this page.

Question:

I share my email address with a family member. Can we all use the same address to create multiple accounts?

Answer:

In order to create an account on campus.extension.org , each user must have a unique email address. You can create multiple accounts on a shared email address by adding "+OTHERNAME" to your email address (add it to the  part before the @ with no spaces). For example, if the shared email address is smithfamily@aol.com, then when you create an account on campus.extension.org, enter this as the email address : smithfamily+SALLY@aol.com and/or smithfamily+SAM@aol.com.  Campus will think of this as a different address, but in most cases, the email provider will ignore that "+OTHERNAME" in the address and send the email to the regular shared email account.
