Account Security is Important

With access to many MSA services, it’s imperative to keep account credentials secure at all times. Changing your MSA Network account password on a regular basis is the optimal idea and easy to do. Follow these simple steps to change your MSANET account password and stay secure. 

NOTE: Changing your password using either of the following options will change the password for all MSANET synchronized services, such as Microsoft Office 365, Moodle, support ticket systems, campus computers, and any other synchronized services and devices.

Option 1: Change Using a Campus Computer

Any employee or student may change their account password using a Microsoft Windows-based computer connected to the campus network.

  1. Login to a Windows-based computer.
  2. Press CTRL+ALT+DEL keys at the same time.
  3. Choose “Change Password.”
  4. Enter your current password.
  5. Enter a new password. The password must meet the following complexity requirements: Has a minimum of 8 characters, contains at least 1 uppercase letter, contains at least 1 lowercase letter, contains at least 1 number, cannot be any part of your username, and cannot be an MSANET password you have used in the past.
  6. Enter the password again to confirm.
  7. Press the OK button.

Option 2: Change Using the Online Utility

Any employee or student may change their account password using an internet-connected smartphone, laptop, or desktop computer. Use this option when accessing services off campus or using a non Windows-based campus computer such as an Apple iMac or Linux-based device.

  1. Click the button to access the online utility. 
  2. Login using your current MSANET account in “firstname.lastname” format.
