Passwords

Your ONUnet password is your one password for most of Olivet’s online resources.  You will use this password to connect to the wireless, check email and log into your classes. 

Password Recommendations:

The longer and more complex a password is, the more secure it is.  For that reason we recommend that you try to incorporate all of the characteristics outlined below.  While this may make your password seem cumbersome at first, it will be much harder for bad actors to compromise your accounts.

Most systems will require a minimum of 8 characters, and don’t allow more than a maximum of 256 characters.  Additionally, most systems, including Microsoft, allow all of the characters below.  Keep in mind, Microsoft and many others do not allow you to use Unicode characters as part of a password.

  • A – Z
  • a - z
  • 0 – 9
  • @ # $ % ^ & * - _ ! + = [ ] { } | \ : ' , . ? / ` ~ " ( ) ;
  • blank space

Self-Service (Parent-Proxy) Passwords:

Students can grant parents/guardians proxy access to their Self-Service account, which will allow you to see your student's information, download important documents and even make payments.  If you do not have Olivet credentials and you use a proxy number (ex. px1234567) to login, your password will be different.  You should have received a default password when your account was created, when you login the first time you should be prompted to create a new, personalized password.  When you create that password you should try to incorporate the same guidelines outlined above.

Forgot Your Password

Once You have Setup  2 Authentication methods, you can reset your password at any time.
