Please note that in order to change your IWU password you must follow the complexity requirements detailed below:

The IWU password must contain three out of the following four categories

  1. English uppercase characters (A through Z)
  2. English Lowercase characters (a through z)
  3. Numeric digits (0 through 0)
  4. Non-alphabetic characters (for example: !,$,#,%

Other Requirements

The IWU password may not contain your full first name or last name. For example: if your username is john.doe your password can not contain "john" or "doe". 

Your password may also not contain more than 3 consecutive letters of your username. For example: if your username is john.doe your password can not contain in any area "joh" or "ohn" 


After completing these steps, your IWU password will be immediately changed to the new value you entered. To find out more regarding which IWU apps and web sites are affected by this change, see IWU Password.
