To change your password, you must use the on-line password-changing program. Changing your password is important for system security and for your own security as well. Your RCS account gives you access to many campus services.
When you change your password, note that it will take at least 15 minutes for the password change to propagate across the various RCS systems.
You do need to know your current password to follow this procedure. If you do not know your current password please submit a Support Request providing your full name, RIN and external email address requesting your RCS account to be reset.

Creating a Strong Password
- Your password must contain from fifteen (15) to thirty (30) characters and include some digits or punctuation marks. Longer is stronger.
- Pick a password that you can remember without writing it down.
- Do not use common words, or words or names that relate to you personally.
- When you change your password, you will also need to change it in any programs that might store it for you.
