Password Requirements

    Ringling College network account passwords must meet the following complexity requirements:

    • must be 12 to 32 characters in length;
    • must contain both numbers and letters (at least two numbers);
    • must contain one or more of the following special characters:
      ~ ! @ # $ % ^ & * ( ) _ - + = ?
    • must contain both lowercase and uppercase letters;
    • must not contain your username;
    • must not contain spaces.

    A password should be easy for you to remember yet difficult for others to guess. One way to create a strong password within these parameters is to use a phrase that means something to you and exchange letters with numbers and special characters. Here are a few examples of strong passwords and what they mean in spoken word:

    Please do not use these examples as your password.

    • Fu3l4Car@Run - Fuel for Car to Run

    • 1Sma!!St8p4Man - One Small Step for Man
    • %ofR@ttlSn8kesInTheDe4$ert - Percentage of Rattle Snakes In The Dessert

    We appreciate your time and effort in helping us create a more secure network.
