You can use this page as an easy way to change your Concordia passwords (not including CCAngel and the faculty portal). You should use this page at least once to synchronize your password for the different systems we run on campus.
Verifying your Identity
The first step in changing your password is to provide your current username and password to verify your identity. We ask for your current password at this point so that an unauthorized person can not change your password without your knowledge. Enter your username and current password in the first two fields of the form at the bottom of the page.
Selecting A Password
(Note: You MUST enter a new password. You CAN NOT use your existing gloria password for the new password.)
Now you must select a new password. Your password should be something you will remember, but someone trying to break into your account would find hard to guess. You can use any combination of 7 to 12 upper and lower case letters, numbers, and punctuation. Please note that the password is case sensitive, so 'HELLO' is different from 'hello' is different from 'hElLo'.
DO NOT USE YOUR NAME AS A PASSWORD! In fact, you should avoid using actual words at all. You might take two short words and combine them with a special character or number, as in "robot4my', or 'eye-con'. You could also put together an acronym that is special to you, such as 'Notfsw' for 'None Of This Fancy Stuff Works." Of course, these examples are now BAD passwords, since they are here. :-) If you choose a poor password, the system will not accept it, and may ask you to try again.
Here are the system requirements for a new password, remember, the system will reject passwords that do not follow these requirements.
- Between 7 and 12 characters. (Note: passwords for the faculty login system need to be at least 7 characters long. If you want to use the same password for your gloria/Windows accounts as for your faculty login account, your should select a password that is 7 or 12 characters long.)
- Each password must contain at least one upper case and one lower case alphabetic character and at least one numeric or special character. In this case, "alphabetic" refers to all upper or lower case letters. Do not use an apostrophe!
- Each password should differ from the user's login name and any reverse or circular shift of that login name. For comparison purposes, an upper case letter and its corresponding lower case letter are equivalent.
- New passwords should differ from the old by at least THREE CHARACTERS. For comparison purposes, an upper case letter and its corresponding lower case letter are equivalent.
