If your SSO password is between 8 and 15 characters, it will expire after 1 year. If it is greater than 15 characters, it expires after 4 years. When your password expires, you will be prompted to create a new password. You may self-reset your password anytime by using the ‘I forgot my password’ link on the logon page.
All SSO log-in attempts are logged by IP Address, date and time. After 6 consecutive failed log-in attempts, your account will be locked and you will need an SSO administrator for your location to unlock your account and reset your password.

- Must be at least 8 and not more than 128 characters
