On December 31, 2004, student EUID password will be expired unless you've changed it since October 18, 2004. If your password expires, you will need to reset it before you can log in to central computing systems such as my.unt.edu, EagleMail, and WebCT. Once you set a new password, it will be valid for 120 days.
To change or reset your password open the following URL in any web browser: http://ams.unt.edu/
Detailed instructions for changing or resetting your password can be found on the CITC helpdesk page: http://www.unt.edu/helpdesk
Just one password . . .
Most students at UNT now must only remember one password to access all of their student computing resources. The new password policy is intended to protect those resources as well as all student's individual data resources at the University. While it may be an inconvenience, it is not an impossibility to create a strong password that is also memorable.
Some techniques for doing so include using the first letter of each word in a phrase with capitalization and punctuation, intermingling two words while including capitalization and punctuation, or intermingling letters of a word with numbers (but not birthdates or other personal information), while including capitalization or punctuation.
This new policy supports the convenience of using one password for all access while taking the best measures possible to keep that password secure. By using the new password standards, we are all doing our part to help secure the campus computing environment.
For assistance with the Account Management page, you can contact the CITC Helpdesk via e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) or phone (940-565-2324). For more information, please see the password FAQ below. We appreciate your help in maintaining a secure computing environment at UNT.
