Students - good news! The Netpass expiration period for student accounts has been changed to 1 year. That means the next time you change your password, you'll be able to keep using the same password for a whole year! This only applies to Netpass, not other accounts such as Parnassus or HomerConnect.

Faculty and staff Netpass passwords will continue to have a 120-day expiration policy. Since faculty and staff accounts often have access to sensitive college data, a 120-day expiration period is considered to be a "best practice".
