Password Management

Service
Description

This is the password you use in conjunction with your NWU# to gain access to most IT services. Your initial password is either your ID number or passport number followed by @Nwu, e.g., 12345667890123@Nwu

Your password will be the same for all CAS systems (e.g., eFundi, e-mail, MS Office 365 suite, etc.) This is NOT your student PIN, used for academic systems (e.g., registration, account enquiries, exam results). To change your student PIN, please visit Change Student PIN.

ATT: Staff - this is not your VSS password. To change your VSS password, please visit VSS Password Reset. Your password expires after three months. Please change your password before this time.

If your password expires, you will have to reset your password by clicking on 'Forgot Password' on site.
