Step 3: Filling in the Page
The Last Name will be the owner's last name, sometimes last names are spelled differently, contact Student Records for exact spellings. Birth Date needs to be in the format of mm/dd/yy; for example, if your Birthday is January 1st, 2001 you would enter 01/01/01. Student or Employee ID number is provided by Student Records and Human Resources respectfully.
Step 4: Change your Password
The page will now ask to change the password on the UCCS account. The password has to be at least 10 characters long (8 characters for UCCS Employees) with at least 1 capital, 1 lowercase, and a number or symbol. Passwords at UCCS cannot contain the name of the owner or their birthday. Security questions can be set up at this point as well but the only mandatory information is an alternate email address from outside UCCS.
