CU: Change or Reset Your Password

CedarNet users (faculty, staff, parents, students, and alumni) use the same universal password to access CedarNet, CedarInfo, Google Apps, Moodle, and Atomic Learning.

CedarNet passwords expire every 360 days for most current faculty, staff, student, and department accounts. Some Cedarville divisions (and their student workers) have stricter expiration time-frames (e.g., 180 days). Alumni and parent passwords do not automatically expire.

If you do not remember your CedarNet username and password, please call Information Technology at 937-766-7905.
