How do I change my UM computer account password?

Summary

This article explains how to reset UM domain password used to access employee email and computers, not NetID passwords.  If you are looking for information on resetting your NetID password please read How do I change or reset my NetID password? 

Domain passwords are set to expire every 364 days.  If you do not change your password before then, you will end up getting locked out of your computer account. Once that happens you will need to contact your IT support to have the password reset. You can find your IT support by referencing the Who Supports Me article.

Before your password expires you may change it on your own; you must know your current password to complete this process.
