PAWS Frequently Asked Questions

My User ID doesn't work. What's going on?

Your User ID is case-sensitive. Turn off the caps-lock key if it is on. Try entering the User ID exactly as it was provided to you. Be certain you are entering the proper numerals (zero rather than an 'O'). If that doesn't help, please contact the FSU IT Help Desk.

What is the criteria for setting up complex/strong passwords?

See the Format for Complex Passwords page for complete information.

Why is PAWS so slow?

Click OK and exit the window.
