New Affiliate Password Help

Starting June 17, 2014 affiliates (“volunteers”) will be required to reset their MyFSU password every 120 days. This change is happening because we require that people who work with confidential information, such as student academic records, have their passwords expire. We have to treat all affiliate accounts the same even if just a few are accessing confidential information.

Before you can change your password, you must first set up security challenge questions. After completing the security challenge setup you will then be able to change your password.

For general information about setting up your security challenge questions and resetting your password click here.

Setting Up Security Challenge Questions


1.    When you arrive at the above link, a pop-up box will appear for you to log in with your Ferris Computing ID (MyFSU ID) and your password.

Note: Be sure to insert “@student.local” after your ID. (Ex: MyFSUID@student.local) You will also need to type “@student.local” each time the password assistance system asks you for your user name. (Yes, we do mean student.local for Affiliate accounts.)

2.    Once you click “OK” you will be taken to a screen to begin the password registration process.

3.    You will need to enter your current password.

4.    Then answer at least three of the questions listed.

5.    Once finished you will see a screen that states you have completed the registration.

Resetting Your Password

Remember: This password must have at least eight characters which contain an upper case letter, a lower case letter, and a numerical value. It cannot be the same as your MyFSU ID.
