Office 365 Accounts for Parents

When logging into the Xavier College parent portal, it is important that you are using your Xavier College parent login. This is your parent username followed by “@xavier.vic.edu.au” – For example, Joseph.Parent@xavier.vic.edu.au

If you use SharePoint for your work/educational institute (e.g. if you are also studying a course) this may disrupt your login process as the browser may retain and prioritise your other credentials, thus disrupting your Xavier College parent login.

To ensure that SharePoint recognises your appropriate logins, you can add additional account profiles and easily switch from one to the other as required.

Web Version – Computer

Start by logging in to one of your existing SharePoint accounts. For this example, we have started from the Xavier College Senior Campus portal page.

From the top right-hand side, click on the user icon to view your account details.
