How do I change my Columbus State employee password?

ISSUE

Changing passwords is recognized as a best practice for keeping good security on an account.  Please tell me the steps to change my password at CSCC.

ENVIRONMENT

Account password maintenance.

RESOLUTION

Columbus State will never send an email asking for user name and password verification. If you receive such a message, please look at the article https://kb.cscc.edu/article/phishing-email-messages-asking-you-to-verify-your-account-and-password-35.html .

To change your password, go to http://cscc.edu .  Click on the Quick Links drop-down and choose "Usernames / Passwords" item.  This will direct you to the password change page.  Choose the item "Change My Password".  Log in with your credentials.  If you have the questions answered, you can just fill in the "New Password" and "Retype New Password" boxes.  Feel free to change any of your questions/answers and each that you change will be updated.  Click the "Update Password" box.

The current password complexity requirements are

  • Password has not been used before
  • Password is 8 or more total characters
  • It begins with a letter
  • 1 or more upper case letter
  • 1 or more lower case letter
  • 1 or more numbers
  • No special characters at this time.

Once your password is updated, you must also update your password on any wireless devices connected to CSCC's wireless network.  You must also update your password if you sync email/calendar.

See the following articles for updating wireless:
