Password Change Requirement (twice per year)

April 2014: UISO celebrates the community's participation in the password change initiative. More than 29,000 GU community members changed passwords. In six months, UISO will remind students, faculty, staff and alumni to change their passwords again.

We are grateful for our users' partnership in this endeavor to protect GU information, data and personal identities.
