    Your User ID is the first 7 letters of your Last Name. (Use the full last name if less than 7 letters. If your name has a hyphen, use the first 7 letters omitting the hyphen); the first letter of your First Name and the Last 4 digits of your 7-digit student ID number (located on the back of your Student ID card).

  5. A message will display saying your password has expired.  You must change your password.  Enter a new password which must be 6 - 9 characters with at least one letter and one with no special characters (@#$&*_-+).
    You also have the option to enter a password hint to remind you what your password is the next time you login.

  6. Click OK.
