Changing your password

SMCC's policy requires that you change your password every 180 days. Our computer system will notify you when that 180 day period has been reached.  However, there may be times where you might want to change your password sooner, such as when you believe your password has been compromised.  You do have the option to change your password at any time prior to the 180 day automated cycle.
