How to Change Your UMICH Password

Quick Link: Change My Password Now

We recommend that you check your UMICH password for security once every six months (see the Password Security Checklist). We also recommend that you change your password to something more secure if you are notified that your password is weak.

See Choosing and Changing a Secure UMICH Password (R1162) for tips on selecting a secure, strong password, as well as detailed instructions for changing your password.

IMPORTANT! When you change your UMICH password, you are actually changing several passwords. You new password is synchronized to several systems by the UMICH Password Hub.

TROUBLESHOOTING TIP: If you change your password and then find that you are unable to access a particular service, wait a few minutes and try again. Your password change is synchronized to several systems, and it may take some time for your password change to be processed.
