Change Your Password
Penn State requires all Penn State Access Account owners to change their passwords annually, to increase the personal security of the community and help protect business, research and academic resources throughout the University.
Although all students, faculty and staff must change their Access Account passwords annually, passwords can be changed more frequently, and at any time, for higher security. You will receive reminders to change your password prior to its expiration date. You can check your password expiration date online. ITS strongly encourages you to change your password before it expires, in order to avoid disruption to your access to University systems and services.
