Change UCID Password


This process will change the password of your University Computing ID (UCID), but not the password of other computer accounts associated with your UCID. For best results you should use this procedure instead of the current, so that all all your passwords are changed at the same time.

This process changes the password used to access the following systems and services:

General access:

Student access:

Faculty/Staff access:

Alumni access:

This process assumes you already have a UCID and know the current password. If you do not know your UCID password, please use this procedure instead of the current to reset your password.
