Deadline approaching to change ePasswords

In order to enhance security and comply with federal audit requirements, Vanderbilt is now requiring all VUnetID holders to change their ePassword each year.

The deadline this year is June 15. To change your ePassword, please go to and follow the instructions.

Your ePassword pairs with your VUnetID, which grants you access to many online systems at Vanderbilt. For faculty and staff, systems include C2HR, e-mail, the Vanderbilt directory, online Library resources, online storage and many other systems in your department and across Vanderbilt. For students, those systems include VU Gmail, YES (Your Enrollment Services), OAK and others.

Employees are encouraged to change passwords right away and not wait for the June 15 deadline.

Password changes sometimes take up to 15 minutes to propagate to all systems.

If you have problems or need assistance, please contact your local technology support provider or the Help Desk.
