CN - Accounts - Change a CN Password in MyCN


  • How do I change my CN account password?


  • Oregon State University
  • Community Network (CN)


Customers who have one of the following account types can use MyCN to reset their password:

  • Student employees with an "se-username" account.
  • External customers who have been granted a "CN account" that is not an ONID account (e.g. you login as CN\username).
  • External customers who have been granted a "delegated account" in the ONID domain (but not sponsored accounts).

Note: If you have an ONID account (for students, employees, associates, or sponsored) please follow the ONID password reset steps instead. 

If you have a department account (not CN, not ONID), please contact your department IT for assistance.
