No campuswide password change period

By Information Technology Services

K-State eID passwords will now need to be changed every 180 days. This enhancement is designed to distribute the password expirations throughout the year, as opposed to the set times we have now.

What does this mean for me?

Your eID password will need to be changed at least every 180 days. Your 180 days began the last time you changed your password. To check when your password will expire, sign in to Connect by clicking the "Sign in" button from the K-State homepage.

When you change your password a new 180-days begins. You will receive an email reminder two weeks and then two days before your password expires, prompting you to change your password. As always with any password change make sure to put the new password into the password settings for your computers, devices and applications, including:

  • KSU Wireless and/or KSU Housing Wireless connections
  • Your local email and calendar client
  • Mobile devices such as your cellphone or tablet
