Your Active Directory username (i.e. network and email credentials) is tied to a password in order to access the services on campus. It is important that you never share your password with anyone. Passwords are only good for a certain time period, at which point they "expire" and must be changed. This is to reduce the chance of a long lasting password from being used to access our services without authorization.
FMU Active Directory passwords must adhere to the following guidelines:
They must be at least 8 characters in length.
They must include characters and numbers.
They cannot be reproductions of any of your previous 4 passwords.
They have a maximum age of 120 days. (This is the "expiration period".)
