Students in a computer lab

CSUMB has implemented updated OtterID password requirements based on the CSU System-Wide Information Security Standards. Passwords must be at least 8-characters long and contain at least three (3) out of the four (4) following character types:

  • At least one uppercase alphabet character (A-Z)
  • At least one lowercase alphabet character (a-z)
  • At least one number (0-9)
  • At least one special character (~ ! @ # $ & * ( ) _ + = - ` { } [ ] | : " ; ' < > , . ? /)

Passwords must be changed every 180-days.

You may not re-use any of your last 3 passwords.

If you don't update your password, it will expire on December 1 and you will be forced to change your password before you can use MyCSUMB or other services that use your OtterID.
