How do I change my SIS administrative password? What are the rules for passwords for SIS administrative users?

You will receive your initial password when you get notice of being assigned your SIS responsibility. You will be required to change this initial password; going forward, you will also be required to change your password on an annual basis (effective March 2015).

The password will need to be changed through the SIS administrative site. You cannot change this password using Employer/Manager Self-Service. If you wish to change your password before the annual change date, log in to the SIS and click on Change My Password in the Menu. If you have forgotten your password and cannot log in, call the UVA Help Desk.

The new password should be a strong password; these are our recommendations for strong passwords.
