Password RequirementsPassword Requirements

When resetting your password, keep in mind that it must be at least 8 characters long and contain at least 3 of the following categories:

  • English uppercase characters (A through Z)
  • English lowercase characters (a through z)
  • Numbers (0 through 9)
  • Non-alphabetic characters (for example, !, $, #, %)

The password must not contain any part of your first or last name.

Updating your Password: You can update your password on The POD by clicking the 'Update Password' link on the top of the page. For security reasons, your password must be updated every 90 days.



Your ACCess ID's password should never be shared with anyone. ​Always be careful when clicking on attachments or links in email. If it’s unexpected or suspicious for any reason, don’t click on it. Double check the URL of the website the link takes you to: bad actors will often take advantage of spelling mistakes to direct you to a harmful domain. ​

Think CyberSafety:
Alvin Community College faculty and staff will NEVER ask for your password. Emails posing as members of ACC IT (or as automated emails), requesting your user id or password for any reason, should be immediately deleted and reported to the IT Service Desk,
