Password Change Instructions

Password Change Instructions


Password changes occur every 120 days. If you have difficulty with the process, please contact the Help Desk for assistance.

Please review the special characters restricted by Banner. Although we have tried to prevent this from happening, it may be possible to change your network password and be locked out of Banner. Additionally, Oracle (the database behind Banner) when checking password history is case insensitive. This means that just changing case when updating your password will not work, you must change numbers or characters as well.

Faculty, I would strongly encourage you to change your password prior to leaving for the summer. Changing your password automatically resets the 120 day expiration date.
