Fall eID password change period open until Sept. 14

By Betsy Edwards

The fall 2011 semester eID password change period is open now until Sept. 14. This mandatory password change occurs every fall and spring and applies to all eIDs.

K-State will never ask for your eID password via email. Any message that asks for your password is a phishing scam and should be deleted immediately.

To change your password use the sign in to K-State Web page, sign in with your eID and current password, then click "Change your eID password" and follow the steps.

Forgot your password? Call the IT Help Desk, 785-532-7722 and verify your identity. Staff can set a temporary password for you to sign in.

Email reminders are typically sent to K-Staters with unchanged passwords prior to the password change deadline. After Sept. 14, those with unchanged passwords will lose access to K-State webmail, the iSIS student information system, K-State Online, free laser printing, university computer labs and other resources.

Every K-State eID must be changed as long-term use of the same password is a known risk factor. For more password details, including how to choose a good one, read the "frequently asked questions about eID passwords."
