Using the online Password Reset Page

Change your password

Note: If you have not already done so you need to change your password before your password expires.

Go to http://password.knox.edu
To reset your password you will need to provide your full email address and current password. You will then be prompted for a new password then to confirm the new password.
Password Requirements:

  • You may reset your password only once in a 24-hour period
  • You may not repeat a password until after the fifth consecutive password reset.
  • The password may not contain your account name or parts of your full name that exceed two consecutive characters.
  • The password must be at least eight characters in length.
  • The password must contain characters from three of the following categories:
    • English uppercase characters (A through Z)
    • English lowercase characters (a through z)
    • Digits 0 through 9
    • Non-alphabetic characters, (i.e., !, $, #, %) -- EXCEPT for slashes and greater-than and less-than symbols (i.e., / or \ or < or >) since they may cause problems with wireless authentication

If you do not remember your password or your account is locked, contact the ITS Help Desk, SMC E005, 309/341-7700. Be prepared to present your Knox ID.
