All new students are required to change their passwords at first login. This is to help prevent your account being subject to identify theft as your initial password of date of birth is not secure for long term use.
The first time you login to a campus PC, you will be forced to change your password as part of the login process. The password must be a minimum of 7 characters in length. Similarly, when you login to your email, Brightspace or MyDay you will be asked to change your password.
