District Password Policy

The required length and complexity requirements for District passwords will change. You will be required to use a password that is at least 12-characters and includes 3 of the following four categories:

• Uppercase letter (A through Z)
• Lowercase letter (a through z)
• Number (0 through 9)
• Special character (for example, !, $, #, %)

In addition, previously used passwords cannot be reused.
Passwords may not contain the user’s account name or parts of the user’s full name that exceed two consecutive characters.

Complexity requirements are enforced when passwords are changed or created. You will be required to change your password every 180 days. In addition, users that have not changed their password in the last 6 months will be required to modify their password when the policy is implemented.

We recommend changing your password soon to comply with the new requirements. The policy will be implemented on Aug 1, 2019 for all Staff, Faculty, Vendor and Student Worker District accounts. Please contact the IS Department using the ServiceDesk system if you have any questions regarding how to change your current password. Note: CMC Student account password policy changes will come at a later date.

You may ask, “who is going to remember a 12-character complex password”? For this reason, we recommend using a phassPHRASE instead of a passWORD. Something like “I like 2 eat pizza!” meets all the requirements and is easier to remember. Just don’t make it too easy to guess. Note: the space is a valid character for your CMC email, portal and computer login passwords.

Recommendations for CMC and personal account passwords (never use the same password for District accounts and personal accounts):
