After Feb. 9, unchanged passwords will lose access to K-State e-mail, iSIS, K-State Online, the university computing labs, and other IT services.

  • A phrase with several words and spaces
  • Up to 30 characters (7 minimum)

Remember that K-State will NEVER ask for your password via e-mail. Any e-mail that does so is a scam and should be deleted immediately.
