Changing your St Mary's College Account Password

This article explains how to change passwords yourself for your St Mary's Account:

 

Please note that you do need to know your current password to change it - If you do not know your current password you may request a temporary password from the IT dept.

 

First, go to the Microsoft Office Home page: https://www.office.com

 

From here, sign in with your St Mary's College account and password

Once signed in, click on your name in the top right corner and choose View account

__________________________________________________

Passwords chosen must:

  • Be a minimum of eight (8) characters in length
  • Contain at least one (1) character from three (3) of the following categories:
        Uppercase letter (A-Z)
        Lowercase letter (a-z)
        Digit (0-9)
        Special character (~`!@#$%^&*()+=_-{}[]\|:;”’?/<>,.)

Passwords chosen must not:

  •  Contain a common proper name, login ID, email address, initials, first, middle or last name 
  •  Reuse any of your last 5 previous password

__________________________________________________

REMEMBER: A LONG password will always be more secure than a SHORT, RANDOM password

If a long password is hard to remember, try making it a phrase, saying or lyric that you're familiar with

Once you have clicked submit your new password will be applied
