After the normal maintenance period on Sunday, May 14, all new WVU Login passwords will need to be at least 12 characters long and include a special character. No immediate change is necessary, but you will need to meet this requirement the next time you change your password at login.wvu.edu.
With this increased complexity, your password is less likely to be compromised. Login
passwords must include one uppercase letter, one lowercase letter, one special character
and at least one number. This change applies to anyone with a WVU Login account,
including WVU Health Sciences employees.
