Password Reset Instructions

Resetting your network password

Your network password expires every 180 days and is used to access the following services:  Albion College Lab & Faculty/Staff Computers, Cisco NAC Agent, Wireless Internet Authentication, Albion Website Access, and Moodle Course Webs.  It is likely different from your Albion Gmail password unless you have purposely set them as the same.

For new users, email and network password are intially set the same.  Albion Gmail passwords can be changed within the Gmail interface by selecting "Mail Settings" from the gear-shaped icon in the upper right-hand corner of the window. 

You will receive email notifications 30, 14, 7, 3, 2, & 1 day(s) prior to your network password expiring.

If you are off campus, or do not have access to an Albion Computer Lab or Faculty/Staff computer, you can use the Reset Network Password Web Application by clicking on the following link.

Resetting your network password from a campus machine

You can change your network password by logging into a computer lab or faculty/staff machine.  Click Ctrl+Alt+Delete and select the “Change a password” option.  You will have to enter your current network password once and your new network password twice.  The same network password character minimums listed below apply.

Please keep in mind that your password must be between eight (8) and fifteen (15) characters long and contain three of the following four:

  • Uppercase (A – Z)
  • Lowercase (a – z)
  • Digits (0 – 9)
  • Non-alphanumeric (!, @, #, %, etc.)

As always, please contact the help desk at 517-629-0479 or if you have any problems with your Albion network password.
