February 26th, 2014

Stronger Passwords

On March 18, information technology will implement new password requirements to increase CedarNet account security. New CedarNet passwords will be case-sensitive. In addition, your new password must contain:

  • A minimum of 8 characters
  • At least one alphabetical and one numeric character
  • Optional: may include upper case letters and special characters

The next time you change your password through CedarInfo, your new password will need to adhere to the password strength requirements  listed above. Password expiration is not in force for most students; however, students who work for information technology will be required to change their CedarNet password every 180 days.

Used Computer Sale – Students

Students interested in purchasing a used computer system (includes a 22-inch flat screen monitor) from the University will have the opportunity to reserve a system online starting April 1. Payment is due at the time of pickup. Computer pickup is available Wednesday through Friday of final exam week as well as select dates in the summer (shipping is not available).
