Murray State Account Password Requirements

New Easier Password Requirements image

Murray State University has introduced new password requirements for Murray State user accounts, including myGate, Canvas, and network/wireless access. Starting on Monday, October 19, faculty, staff, and students who have not updated their password to match the new requirements will be required to do so when logging in.

The new password requirements are one of several new features introduced on Monday, August 3, 2020. These features include:
  -  Simplified password requirements
  -  Your password never expires
  -  Password Self-Service for forgotten passwords
  -  A single password for all Murray State systems (except for RacerMail)

To take advantage of these new features before they become mandatory on Monday, October 19, we encourage you to visit the Account Services section on the Home tab in myGate and:
  1.  Change your password in the GRAY box. If you have set a new password since August 3 that meets the new requirements, you don’t have to change it again.
  2.  Sign up for Password Self-Service in the GOLD box.

For more information about the new Murray State password, view the “Accounts, Usernames, and Passwords Guide” article.

More information about Password Self-Service and other new features are in the “Murray State Usernames and Passwords - Fall 2020 Changes” article.
