About Your WWCC Password

Your WWCC NetID password is also referred to as your WWCC password. It is the password that is associated with your WWCC computing account.

Your WWCC NetID password is the one that you enter on the WWCC NetID login page when you are accessing many WWCC systems, including MyWWCC, CCNET, and campus computers.

 

Password Requirements

All WWCC account holders are required to create passwords of a minimum of 8 characters in length, and must contain at least one capital letter, one lowercase letter, and a number or non-alphabetic character.

 

Tips When Changing Your Password

Create a Passphrase

Creating and remembering a passphrase is often simpler than creating and remembering a password. A passphrase can be made up of several words that form a phrase or sentence. Such passphrases are more secure than shorter, complex passwords.

Although a passphrase cannot be a stand-alone dictionary word or a common phrase, it can be made up of several words that from a phrase a sentence, such as “Mysmartpuppy2” (13 characters), “outofthePurplesky12” (19 characters), or “Mom drinks plenty of apple juice!” (33 characters, counting spaces). The longer you make your password, the more secure it will be.

 

Update Your Programs and Devices

After changing your password on the ITS website, you will also need to update where your password has been stored. This includes email applications and WWCC wireless settings.

Account holders should be aware that it may take up to 15 minutes for your new password to become effective. During this time, your old password will continue to function.
