Staff/Faculty: Password Requirements and How to Reset an Expired Password Off Campus


Basic steps for an off-campus password expiration for Staff and Faculty.


This is a self-help guide for resetting a password that has expired when not on a SJRState Campus network/computer. This is for Staff and Faculty.

Remember, it should be something easy for you to remember but hard for others to guess!

Is my Password Expired?

Is my Password expired? If any of these are true, then possibly your expiry date has passed.

  1. It has been 45-60 days since your password has been changed/updated
  2. Your known-good password no longer works
  3. Your password worked very recently

Password Requirements

  • Your password must be at least 12 characters in length.
  • Your password must include at least 3 of the following 4 character classes to meet complexity requirements:
    • At least one uppercase letter (A-Z).
    • At least one lowercase letter (a-z).
    • At least one number (0-9).
    • At least one special character from these: 
  • Avoid using characters $ and <. There are some of our internal systems that will error if your password includes them when logging in.
  • Avoid using parts of your personal information in the password:
    • Username or Account Name : Your username cannot be a part of the password.
    • Name/Username: Your password cannot include your name, username, or any significant part of them.  Only parts that are three characters or longer are checked. For example, if your name is "John A. Smith", "John" and "Smith" would be checked against the password, but "A" would not because it is too short.
  • Your new password cannot be the same as any of your last 10 passwords.
