Password Reset for Faculty & Staff


To enhance security all UCO faculty, students and staff are required to change their UCO password every 90 days.  You may change your password at any time, but if 90 days have passed since it was last changed, you will be prompted to change it.  This will be enforced by using an alert mechanism in UCONNECT.
