Because PeopleSoft is a web-based application involving personal and confidential data, there is a need to improve security practices to protect the data contained within our new administrative systems.
Strengthening NetID passwords is the first step in improving authentication practices and incorporating stronger security measures at the University.
Anyone who will be able to access other people's personal and confidential information through their use of the PeopleSoft application must change their NetID password to meet the requirements described on this page. These requirements will therefore apply to staff, faculty and research users of PeopleSoft, but do not apply to students who will be using PeopleSoft to access SOLUS, QCARD's replacement.
Your PeopleSoft strengthened NetID password:
The first time someone logs in to the portal to access PeopleSoft, they will not see the link to the PeopleSoft application unless their password meets the minimum strength requirements. Instead, they will see the link Change My Password, which will take them to the Identity Management system and guide them through the password change. When they log in to the portal again with their newly strengthened password, the PeopleSoft link will be visible.
Any time someone's NetID password does not meet the strength requirements and/or is more than 120 days old, the link to access the PeopleSoft application within the portal will be replaced with the Change My Password link.
Everyone who must access PeopleSoft will receive an advisory email on day 110 of their password cycle (10 days before expiry) warning them that their password will need to be changed.
Please visit the NetID Password Change page for more information.
When you change your NetID password, it will apply to all your NetID-based services. Some of these services include:
