    1. Notify the student they need to reset their password due to suspicious activity
    2. DO NOT reset the password back to the default OR reuse any variation of an old password.

Verify Student Identity

  2. Search for the student by their username.
    1. Student username format: lastna.firstnDD
  3. Enter the student’s new password

    2. Previous passwords may not be reused
    3. Two of the following must be followed if the password is less than 16 characters:
      1. Passwords may not contain a significant portion of the person’s name
      2. Passwords may not contain a significant portion of the person’s last password
      3. Passwords may not contain any character 3 times or more consecutively
