Change Password

You can change your password in the Change Password section under My Account

The following are the requirements for password format:

  • Must be between 8-20 characters long
  • Must be a mix of alpha-numeric characters and have at least one letter or one number. No other characters are allowed.
  • The password is case sensitive. It is recommended to use upper and lower case characters. Stronger passwords contain both upper and lower case characters.

Can't remember your username and/or password? You can request your username to be sent to the email address under your personal information and you can request your password to be reset.

NOTE: If you have your password reset, it is recommended you go to the change password section and change your password to something easier to remember. The password sent from a reset request is a random generated string of letters and numbers.
