Let them know that you are trying to set up your ParklandOne account but do not have a mobile phone.

NOTE: Your username is sent via email to the alternative email address that is on file at Parkland.  Please read the Privacy Policy & Terms of Use, and then click I Agree. If you get a message saying, "User does not exist in selected domain," it may be because your account setup is still in process.  Please wait a day and try again or call the Tech Service Desk to inquire (217-353-3333).
