Three Easy Ways to Change Your Cameron University Password

Cameron University institutes a policy to have employees reset their password every 90 days, and students reset their password every 120 days. For some people, this can be a stressful annoyance, but thankfully, Cameron offers several ways in which you can update and reset your password.

First Method: AggiePass

AggiePass is our main password reset tool. It is a self-service tool that also allows you to come up with security questions to unlock your account should it become locked. You can also set up identity verification using your phone with this service.

Second Method: On a Campus Computer

You can also reset your password at any computer you’re logged into at Cameron. While logged on, simply type CTRL + ALT + DEL and select CHANGE A PASSWORD from the list of options that display.

Third Method: In Your Employee E-mail

If you’re an employee, you can also reset your password via Outlook Web Access (Note – if you’ve been notified that your mail has migrated to Exchange 2013, you will need to use Outlook Web App instead).
