Password Resets

The table below is a consolidated list of all Password Management Tools made available by IST. You are probably most interested in Global Password Change, which allows you to chose a new password to be used for all of your NJIT computing accounts so long as you know your current UCID password, or Unattended Password Reset (UPR), which allows you to reset all your NJIT computing account passwords by answering the two challenge questions you created either during the UCID Account Creation or UPR registration processes. If you do not know your UCID password and you have forgotten the answers to your challenge questions, contact the IST Service Desk for a Temporary Access Code.
