How often you need to change your HawkID password may depend on your college or department and your access privileges.

In general: 

  • HawkID passwords must be changed every 365 days
  • HealthCareID passwords must be changed every 180 days
  • Individual colleges or departments may require more restrictive password rules

Note:  Elevated privilege accounts, such as users with administrative rights on their workstations, require a minimum password length of 15 characters and more frequent password changes.
