As some students have come to realize their time is up, or more so their CampusID password’s time is up.
Georgia State requires its users (faculty included) to change their CampusID password every 120 days. The application of this time limit is unfortunate, to say the least. It means that students that changed or created their account passwords in mid-August—say at the beginning of the fall semester—found their CampusID password expiring in the middle of December. Off the top of my head, I cannot think of anything going on in December that might cause a problem. Oh, I almost forgot students were taking finals in December. Silly me.
Please avoid the headache and panic of learning your CampusID password has expired at an inopportune time. Before finals come back around, take a moment and change your password now or when you are procrastinating studying for that next exam. Directions on how to change your CampusID password can be found here.
Your new passwords must:
- Be between 10-32 characters in length
- Start with a letter
- Not be one of your previous passwords
- Contain at least one lower case letter, upper case letter, and a number
- Not contain one of the following characters: @ / () “ * ‘
It makes it awfully difficult. For help on creating a strong password take a look at these sites:
Finally do not forget to update your CampusID and password on your various devices, e.g. laptop, mobile phone, tablet, etc. Some directions on updating devices can be found here.
