    1. In accordance with the new university Password Policy, OIT will begin enforcing expiration of passwords in May. Going forward, everyone at the university will be required to change their St. Edward’s passwords at least once a year. Thirty days before your password is set to expire, you’ll begin to receive notifications each time you log in to services or applications using your university account. Allowing your password to expire will mean being locked out of university services until you reset it. We encourage you to get ahead of the game — particularly if you haven’t updated your password within the last year — and change your password at account.stedwards.edu.
