Question
What are the password and username guidelines?
Answer
For most students, the following password requirements will apply. If you are enrolled through a corporate partner there may be different password requirements for your account. All students will see the password requirements that apply to them when they click "Change Password"

Password Requirements:
  • At least 8 characters in length
  • 30 characters or less in length
  • Contain at least ONE uppercase character
  • Contain at least ONE lowercase character
  • Contain at least ONE number
  • Contain at least ONE of the following special characters: @ ] \ _ ^ [ " # ! & ' ` $ % * + ( ) . / , ; ~ : } | ? { > = <

Username Requirements:
  • New Students: Your username is your preferred email address.
  • Students that enrolled before mid-July 2013: Your old username remains in effect until you update your profile (you can update your profile when you download a letter of completion or certificate). At this point, your preferred email address will become your username.
