New Password Rules for ADIN & AccessPlus

This news item expired March 10, 2008. It may contain out-of-date information.
Beginning February 10, IT Services implemented new password rules for ADIN and AccessPlus. Changes include the implementation of mixed-case password support and changing the required length of passwords.

The new password rules will not affect your current password and will only apply when you need to create a new password or change your existing one.

The new password rules are as follows:
* Must be 8 characters in length
* Must contain at least one letter (a-z, A-Z) or a supported special character ( @, #, $ only). All letters are case sensitive.
* Must contain at least one number (0-9)
* Cannot contain spaces or unsupported special characters
* Cannot be re-used after a password expires
