Change your network password

When your accounts are ready, the RITE Support Desk will contact you or your department secretary with your login information (username and a temporary password). Before you can access e-mail, Blackboard, Degree Works and other campus resources like wireless and the library databases, you must first create a new password.


There are two ways to change your temporary network password:


Change temporary password from on campus

From on campus, you can change your password by logging on to any campus computer. You will receive a message that you are required to change your password at first login.


Change temporary password from off campus

From off-campus, you can go here to change your password:


Learn how to access Banner

Once you have successfully changed your network password, you'll be able to lookup your Banner ID number and access Banner (the online registration/grading system).
