Password Reset for Faculty & Staff


To enhance security, all UCO faculty, students and staff must change their UCO password every 180 days.  You may change your password anytime, but if 180 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.

Whether you want to be Cyber Secure and update your password every 180 days or need to reset it.
