Resetting a Forgotten Password

Overview

Students, faculty, and staff who forget their University Computing Account password can use the Self-Service Password Reset Service to reset their password online quickly and securely. You must select and answer three online security questions before you can use the Self-Service Password Reset Service. If you forget your password, you will be prompted to answer these security questions in order to verify your identity. If you forget your password and have not set your security questions, you will need to visit a Student Computing Lab to have your password reset.

Note: If you have a sponsored account, you must ask your Responsibility Center Account Administrator or the account sponsor to contact the Technology Help Desk on your behalf.
