Change Password Instructions

It has come to my attention that many students are encountering difficulties with expired passwords. Please follow these instructions to change/renew your password:

Please remember to change your password every 180 days or when prompted by the system. Please use at least eight alpha numeric characters in your password.

Although we are confident that you will have no difficulty changing your password, if you encounter any difficulty, please stop by the IT Suite on the 1st floor of the law library.
