Your Tufts Password provides you with secure access to Tufts network shares and Exchange email. University password standards require that this password be changed every 180 days. Passwords must comply with the Tufts Complex Password Standards.

  • Read this page in its entirety before you proceed.

  • Changing this password also changes your Tufts Exchange email password. If you have a smart-phone or other email-enabled device, such as an iPad, update your password in the Account Settings of the device as soon as possible.

  • After your successful password change, you must logout and login again to avoid being locked out of your domain account.
