In accordance with the Use of Information Technology Resources Procedure, you are responsible for maintaining passwords for any college associated accounts that you may have. Your myHorizon/domain account is synchronized across most systems, including:

  • Office 365/email
  • Ellucian Go
  • computer login (lab and staff-assigned computers)
  • wi-fi access
  • Colleague UI

Your password for these accounts automatically expires after 180 days.

Canvas is an independent system and does not synchronize your account information with our other resources. Canvas passwords do not expire but we encourage you to change them occasionally. You can do this through the Settings link in Canvas.

Note: After you change your password, you need to update your wireless and email passwords on any devices that are set up with this information. This will prevent you from losing connection to the wireless network once your password has changed. You will also not be able to change your password again for 30 days after making a change.
