Change an AD Account (Non-ONID) Password

Issue/Question

  • How do I change my CN or Cosine account password?
  • How do I change my Active Directory (non-ONID) account password?

Environment

  • Oregon State University
  • Non-ONID account

Explanation

These instructions are for customers who have one of the following account types:

  • Student employees with an "se-username" account.
  • External customers who have been granted a "CN account" or other AD 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).
  • Other AD accounts that are not ONID accounts.

If you don't know your current password, you will need to contact your IT team for help first.

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