Update Your Password

We require students and faculty to change their passwords twice per year, once around each time change. You should also change your password anytime you like, or anytime that you feel that your account may be compromised.

Password Requirements:

  1. Your new password must be at least 15 characters long (previously 14)
  2. Your new password cannot be the same as a previous password.
  3. 3. Your new password must have at two of the following three categories: lower case letter, upper case letter, number (previously no complexity requirement)
  4. We recommend a passphrase, rather than a word and number combination.  Something like: "I hate changing my password" or "Did I forget my homework".  They are long enough and easy to remember.
  5. You cannot use the same password for 4 years

Two ways to change your password:

  1. Click this link to change your password. This option can also be done at home.
  2. Log in to any of the PCs on campus. Once logged in, hit CTRL-ALT-DEL and choose "Change a Password..." from the list of options.

Change it SOON!

If your SI Network Password expires, you will not be able to log in to Finalsite (portal), Powerschool, or Canvas until your password is changed. Your Google account will still work during that time. If you try to log in to a computer on campus, you will be prompted to change it before the log in can proceed.

Google Passwords:

As mentioned above, your Gmail/Google Apps password will not expire if you don't change your SI password in time. But when you change your SI password, your Google password will change as well. So you will need to update the password on the mail app of your iPad, iPhone, Droid...
