Password Reset for Students

Service Desk Assistance

  1. If the automated reset methods aren't available to you or if the password change emails are blocked by your email provider, you can change your password in-person by visiting the UCO Service Desk.  You will need to present a UCO ID card or government-issued photo ID.  You will then be allowed to create your new password while at the Service Desk if an alternate email address is associated with your account.


Additional support can be provided by requesting help from the UCO Service Desk. They can be reached by phone at (405) 974-2255.
