On November 8, 2012 a new password controls policy will be enforced. CIT recommends that you change your password prior to November 8 so that ample time is available for you to resolve any issues that you may encounter. If you have not changed your password by November 8, all network services (including the ability to log onto domain-bound computers) will stop working until you change your password. The easiest way to change your password is to visit my.geneseo.edu and select Change Password from the left navigation bar.

All Geneseo faculty and staff will be required to change their password every 180 days
New passwords must meet the following requirements:
  • Your new password must contain at least 8 characters
  • Your new password must contain 3 out of the 4 following character types:
    • Uppercase characters
    • Lowercase characters
    • Numbers
    • Special characters
  • Your new password must not contain your username
  • Your new password must not contain any parts of your full name
