How do I reset my MIIS email password?

 

If your MIIS Wifi or email has suddenly stopped working, you’ve come to the right place! Every 6 months, you must reset your MIIS email password for security reasons.

Due to the recent Heartbleed internet security threat, which puts your data and passwords at risk by exploiting a flaw in the way data is encrypted, we are asking all MIIS students, faculty, and staff to change their email passwords as a precautionary measure.

1. Go to http://go.middlebury.edu/activate. Here you will need to enter your 8-digit Student ID number and your 6-digit BannerWeb PIN. If are unsure about your ID and PIN, click here.

2. Once you’ve entered your ID and PIN, you will be asked to read and agree with the Statement of Responsible Computing. Click Agree and Submit.

3. On this next page, you can reset your password. Keep in mind that you can use a slight variation of your old password so your new password will be easy to remember. (For example, you could switch from Monterey1! to Monterey.2)
**Pay close attention to the character requirements for passwords! You must use at least one uppercase letter, one lowercase letter, one number, and one special character
. If you do not enter this properly, you will not be able to set a new password.

4. Please be sure to write down your new password and store it in a safe place! You will need this new password for on-campus Wifi, printing, and accessing computers in the library, labs, etc.  If you forget your password, you can reset it at any time using the same site.

5. Keep in mind that you will need to update your password on all of your other devices (smartphone, tablet, etc). Your email username and password are the same for your on-campus Wifi. After you change your password, the old password stored on your computer for the MIIS Wifi will need to be changed as well. Come to the ITS Help Desk (CF 320) if you need help accessing Wifi after changing your password.
