As a direct result of the recent network outage, we have been taking significant steps to increase network security. One protection that has been long overdue is enforcing that network passwords change on a regular basis. As such, you are required to change your password immediately using the criteria listed below. All employees should change their password by Monday, November 28, 2022. To change your password use the link provided below and the Password Change Instructions.  After November 28th,  if you did not change your password, you will be locked out of the network and unable to access it until these necessary security steps are followed.

New password change requirements:

  • Minimum password length: 12 characters
  • Old passwords cannot be reused for: 24 entries
  • Must change every 90 days; the system enforces this automatically
  • Must be complex (upper, lower, number, special character)
  • Account lockout after 3 failures for 15 minutes
  • Must wait at least 1 day before changing password again after the last change

Please use the following link to change your password to match the new requirements.

* If you are using an on-campus workstation while resetting your password, we recommend signing out and then back in with the new password directly after you have completed the reset. Keep in mind that this password is the same for all of our integrated services such as Webmail, Teams, Office 365, Mc4me, Canvas, and so on.

The process is intended to be entirely self-service; however, the IT Helpdesk will be available to answer any questions you may have.
