Please see here for Auburn’s coordinated response to COVID-19
Minimum password length for ALL Auburn University accounts is now 12 characters. Any new passwords set in the MyAccount Portal will require a minimum of 12 characters in addition to the existing password complexity (three of the following four: lower case, upper case, number, special character). Please change your password if you haven’t in the last year or if your password is shorter than 12 characters. You have 24 hours to update your password on all of your devices once you change your password in the MyAccount portal before your old password risks locking you out of your account. Please plan accordingly.

Ordering a new computer? Auburn’s arrangement with our leasing vendor has expired, but OIT is still supplying computer purchasing, delivery, setup, and support services. Student Affairs Technology is collaborating with OIT to provide a comprehensive service and support for all of our departments. Orders should still be placed at the original AU Lease portal: https://cws.auburn.edu/oit/aulease. Information should now reflect the new purchase prices, but don’t hesitate to contact AU Lease or SAT with any questions. Note: we’re seeing supply issues with computer components industry-wide, so make sure to get your orders in as early as possible!
