To ensure that all TTU users meet TTU password policy compliance, ITS has upgraded certain system features which enforce password compliance and remind users when to change passwords.

To be compliant, passwords must be changed every ninety (90) days, and must be a minimum of eight (8) characters. All passwords must contain 1 uppercase letter, 1 lowercase letter, 1 number, and 1 special character.

Based on the schedule shown below, you will be prompted to change your password when you attempt to log in. If you are absent on your group's scheduled day, you will be prompted the next time you attempt to log in. You will be unable to access your computer or any other TTU IT resource, including email, until you comply with the password change. To prepare for changing your password (especially for mobile devices), please review the step-by-step guide, located at http://www.tntech.edu/infosec/pswdchange
