Please go to and log in to begin changing your password.

  • As an added security precaution, faculty, staff and current students will be required to set up and use either SMS Notifications or DUO Authentication to verify their identity. If you have not set either of these up, the password manager will ask you to do so.
  • Once you start the process, you will have five minutes to complete the reset before the session times out.

If you have forgotten your password and cannot enroll, please call the help desk at 509.777.3911, ext. 1 to get help setting up a temporary password.

If you are unable to access your DUO Account or are having difficulties with it, please give us a call or use the SMS option to reset your password.

Tips For Creating a Good Password

Words you can look up in the dictionary are easy for people to guess, and hackers can build programs that automatically try known words or phrases.

Instead, use abbreviated phrases and multiple words or fragments of words. You can also substitute numbers and special characters for letters or entire words to break up patterns.

Most importantly, make it easy to remember, but impossible for anyone else to guess.

Connect the first letters of a passphrase:

  • LgoBFf#W1n = Lets go Bucs, fight, fight and win

Take a sentence and turn it into a password:

  • WOO!TSwontSB = Woohoo! The Seahawks won the Super Bowl!
  • Ig0tH1tintheH! = I got hit in the head! By a Frisbee!

Nursery Rhyme:

  • HD504w,HDh4gf = Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall, Humpty Dumpty had a great fall.

Favorite line of a song or movie:

  • I0AIhthg^umPDt1 = It's over Anakin, I have the high ground, You underestimate my power, Don't try it

Double an easier password:

  • P1rat3s!P1rat3s! = Pirates! Pirates!

Reverse any of the above, but don't use the example!
