Subject: Modified Password Policy - Please Read

The password policy was modified slight on October 25, 2011. Passwords must now be at least 8 characters in length as well as alphanumeric. In addition to these two requirements, you will need to use both cases or add a special character, i.e. !,$,#. Passwords will still need to be reset every 120 days as required by the auditors.

As a reminder, you can manage your password remotely via a link on the IT Services web page,

NOTE: Please take a moment and complete the User Registration you find on this page. You need a valid password to register, and MUST BE REGISTERED TO UTILIZE THE SERVICE. Once you have, you will be able to use this as opposed to calling IT to correct your password issues.
