To create an aeries Parent Portal account you will need the following information:
- a VPC (Verification Pass Code)
- your student's permanent ID number
- your home telephone number
ABI Getting Started > Verifying your e-mail
Once the ABI account creation wizard has everything it needs to get started, you will see a page titled 'Step 3'.
At this point, close your web browser.
You will now need to check your e-mail for an e-mail message coming from firstname.lastname@example.org. The message should be received within a minute or two in most cases.
If you do not receive this e-mail within a couple minutes, it is likely that something is blocking the e-mail from getting through to you.
If you have any programs setup to block SPAM mail or junk mail, and/or move messages to a junk mail folder in some way, you will likely need to check this program and/or location to see if the e-mail from email@example.com was accidentally moved/deleted. This is the most common problem in the ABI login process at the start.
If you have a 'safe senders' list, or some other way of letting your e-mail application know that it should consider e-mail coming from firstname.lastname@example.org to be valid e-mail, you can do that ahead of time to allow the e-mail to go through without delay.
Once you receive the e-mail from email@example.com, you will simply need to click on the embedded link within the e-mail. This should then open a web browser window, update your account status to 'verified' on the ABI system, and continue on with the initial login process.
If your e-mail program does not allow you to click on the link to verify the e-mail, there will be instructions in the e-mail explaining how to manually verify your e-mail address.
Note: The e-mail that you receive for verification contains a 'Confirmation code'. This should not be confused with the 'Verification pass code' you receive from the school. The 'Confirmation code' is only needed if you need to manually verify your e-mail address. Whereas the 'Verification pass code' will be the code you use to associate a student with your ABI login.
