Spring eID password change period open until Feb. 8

By Amanda Tross

The spring 2012 semester eID password change period is open until Feb. 8. This mandatory password change occurs every fall and spring and applies to all eIDs, including individual and group eIDs.

To change your password go to http://eid.k-state.edu, sign in with your eID and current password, then click "Change your eID password" and follow the steps.

Once you have changed your password, immediately update the password settings with your new password in all your computers, devices and applications or else risk getting locked out of K-State wireless or email. This includes: 

  • KSU Wireless and/or KSU Housing wireless connections (using XpressConnect)  
  • Your local email and calendar client such as Outlook, MacMail and iCal, Pegasus, or Gmail 
  • Your mobile device(s) such as your cell phone or tablet 

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 sent to K-Staters with unchanged passwords prior to the password change deadline. After Feb. 8, those with unchanged passwords will lose access to K-State webmail, iSIS, K-State Online, limited-free printing, university computer labs and other resources.
