Password-change deadline is Sept. 8

Wednesday, Sept. 8, is the fall deadline for all K-Staters to change passwords on their K-State eIDs. This mandate is for individual eIDs and group eIDs. After Sept. 8, those with unchanged passwords lose access to webmail, iSIS, K-State Online, free laser printing, InfoCommons computers, and other IT resources.

K-State will never ask for your eID password via e-mail. Immediately delete any e-mail that asks for your password (it’s a phishing scam).

  • To change your eID password, sign in on the eid.k-state.edu website. Click “Change your eID password or password-reset options” and follow the steps.
  • Forgot your password? Call the IT Help Desk, 785-532-7722, and verify your identity. Staff can set a temporary password so you can sign in.
  • Password details, including how to choose a good one, are in the Password FAQs.

While you’re changing your password, don’t forget to sign up or review your K-State Alerts contact information, so you can be notified of any emergencies on campus.
