Setting your password up for the first time. The first time you log into your FSU Network account, you will be asked to enter your username and set up identity security questions and answers in the FSU Password and Account Management Portal. These will allow you to retrieve, change and reset your password in the future.

Shared password. At FSU, a single password is automatically shared across multiple system including e-mail, Blackboard and PAWS. Therefore, when you change your password for one of these services, your password will automatically change for all of the others.

Update your password. FSU requires users to update
their password every 60 days. You can do this at
Password and Account Management Portal.

Password format. When creating a new password, rules must be met to ensure the complexity and security of the password. Visit the Format for Complex Passwords page.

Password errors. The Login (Authentication) Errors page describes error messages & conditions that indicate an expired password, incorrect password, or locked account.

Please visit Password and Account Management Portal to manage your password. Contact the FSU IT Help Desk if you encounter problems.
