In accordance with new cybersecurity guidelines, the college will be updating its FIT password requirements from eight-character passwords that expire every 120 days to 12-character passwords that expire every 365 days.
Beginning August 1, 2019, any password reset or change must contain a minimum of 12 characters.
In order to transition to a 365-day password expiration rule, we must ensure that all individuals have a chance to change their password to 12 characters. To accommodate the transition, those that change their password during the month of August to a 12-character password may be required to perform another password change within 120 days.
