Passwords must be changed every 90 days, and must comply with the following criteria:

Not contain the user's account name or parts of the user's full name that exceed two consecutive characters

1. At least eight characters in length

2. Contain characters from three of the following four categories:

• English uppercase characters (A through Z)

• English lowercase characters (a through z)

• Base 10 digits (0 through 9)

• Non-alphabetic characters (for example, !, $, #, %)

3. Must NOT contain any 3 previous passwords.

You will only need to change your password three times a year. Choosing something you can easily remember is the key. It is all about using familiar terms.


Use a familiar term

Innovative Education
• In0V8ivEduc@tion – Remove spaces, change letters to numbers and add a special character. (This one works)
• In0V8&Educ8 – Change to “Innovate and Educate” for a shorter password

Use a Song – When you use a song, you can take the first letter of each word and create a password.

Oh say can you see by the dawn’s early light
• 0SCysbtd’se1
• Use the special character already present in the phrase so it’s easy to remember…
• Use numbers instead of letters. The number “0” for “Oh” , the number 1 for an “L”

Use a Colloquialism

See you later alligator
• Cul8r@lig8tr

These passwords are more difficult to remember, but they are also much more difficult to hack. Protecting financial databases and FERPA protected information must be a primary concern for the university.
