The policy requires the following:
  • Passwords must be a minimum of 14 characters
  • Passwords must be a mix of upper case, lower case, numbers, and special characters. (for example: EyeLuv!ceCream!)
  • Must be changed at least every 180 days
  • Can't be any of your last 24 passwords.
  • Passwords should not exceed 49 characters.
Note: Passwords may not contain the user's First or Last Name.

IT encourages students and staff to use the Self-service Password Reset Tool to enroll in a new 'password reset' system. This allows users to unlock their account or reset their password without assistance from the helpdesk.
