 Accessing Career Cruising from the Student ILP

To access the Career Cruising website, you must first log into your Individual Learning Plans (ILPs). To do this, you need your ILP username and ILP password. The ILP username is your 10-digit state student ID number. Teachers, counselors, and other authorized school staff can retrieve ILP passwords through the School ILP Administration Tool (SIAT).

To log into the ILP, go to and type in your ILP username and password. Then click the Login button. If you do not know your ILP username or password, you will need to contact your teacher, advisor, or other authorized school staff. Career Cruising cannot provide you with that information. If you have forgotten your personal username or password, click on the Forgot Your Password? link on the login page.
