Reset Your WebAssign Password

You can reset your WebAssign password if needed by providing your username, institution code, and email address. You can also use this procedure to set your password if your instructor created an account for you but did not give you a password.

You can't use this procedure to reset your Cengage password.

Note: If WebAssign uses your institution's authentication server, use your school's method for changing your password.
Note: Changes to your WebAssign and Cengage accounts are not synced with each other.
  1. On the WebAssign sign-in page, click Forget beside the password field.
  2. Type the Username, Institution code, and Email Address for your WebAssign account.
  3. Click Submit.

    A message containing instructions for resetting your password is sent to the email address you provided.

    Note: You will not receive any message if your information you provide does not exactly match your WebAssign account or if you have not specified an email address in WebAssign.

    If you do not receive a message, ask your instructor to reset your password.

  4. In the email message, click the displayed Reset Password button or link.
  5. On the Set-Password page, type your new password in the Enter new password and Confirm new password fields.
  6. Click Submit.
A confirmation message verifies that your password was changed or indicates why it was not changed.
