A Word on Passwords

Our systems require the use of passwords to access the various networks and applications across our campus.

Your password is unique to you and should be kept secret. Avoid using familiar names or personal information as your password.

Passwords should not be written down and left where they are easily accessible. Do not attach them to your computer screen or leave them under your keyboard where anyone may be able to access them.

Never give your password to anyone. If you do, keep in mind that you will be held responsible for any actions taken while your username and password were being used. If you suspect your password has been compromised, please change it immediately.
