The University of Michigan has mandated that passwords for all UMICH (Level-1) accounts be changed by the end of Sept. 12.
An email informing faculty, staff and students across the Ann Arbor, Dearborn and Flint campuses, as well as Michigan Medicine, was sent from Ravi Pendse, vice president for information technology, and Sol Bermann, chief information security officer. The message included instructions for accessing the self-service password change page.
If the Sept. 12 deadline is missed, a more intricate account-recovery process will be necessary to regain access. Assistance for this process is provided on the Information and Technology Services website.
When updating, university community members must not reuse prior passwords.
Those facing difficulties with the password tool can find additional resources on the ITS Change Your UMICH Password webpage, or by contacting the ITS Service Center for further support.
