Changing Passwords

Your UNCP network account credentials are used to access BraveWeb, Canvas, Drupal, email, Google Suite, Webex, WiFi, among others.

Students, Faculty and Staff

To change your network password, go to BraveWeb, click on the Change Password link at the top left of the page and follow the instructions.

Passwords are set to expire every 90 days, so be sure to change it prior to it expiring. If the password does expire, it will be necessary for DoIT Help Desk staff to assist by resetting the password.

If you are unable to change your password with either of the two methods shown, you should contact the DoIT Help Desk for further assistance.

Note: Do not give your passwords to anyone. If you suspect that someone may know your password, change the password immediately.
