Password Reset

Passwords are integral to your campus life and work at Walsh University.  Most of our systems utilize Single Sign On (SSO) which allows the user to use the same username and password across systems. This also requires frequent password changes and a strong password to keep your academic and personal information secure.

When, admitted as a student, or first hired you will receive a username and a default password. You MUST set up your self service password and change your password BEFORE doing anything else. Instructions are below;

Password Requirements

    • At least one upper case alphabetic character (A-Z).
    • At least one lower case alphabetic character (a-z).
    • At least one numeric character (0-9).
    • At least one punctuation or symbol character (@, $, #, etc.)
  • You CAN NOT REUSE your last 12 passwords
  • New password CAN NOT INCLUDE your first name, last name or username
