    Complex Passwords That Last Forever

    By increasing the complexity of your password, it remains secure and longer-lasting. As part of the new password policy, all users must reset their password with the new complexity rules.

    Under the new policy, your password must be at least 12 characters in length and contain three of the following components:

    • an uppercase letter between A-Z
    • a lowercase letter between a-z
    • a number between 0-9
    • at least one of the following special characters
      ,    .     `     ~     !     #     $     %     *     (     )     |

    Note: Common phrases, spaces and other special characters are not supported.

    Single Sign-On Services Expanded

    The district is implementing additional single sign-on services for students.

    Once implemented, eCampus (Blackboard) will join Outlook, OneDrive, myPortal, eConnect and other district services in using the same user ID and password — your Dallas College Username.

    Attention eCampus Users

    It is recommended that you do not use Microsoft Internet Explorer or Edge browsers for eCampus.

    Additional Security for Employees

    Employees will also be required to use multi-factor authentication — when logging in to anything that uses your Dallas College Username and Microsoft login services — and while off-campus or using the Dallas College Guest Wi-Fi.

    Employees will be able to choose their second authentication method, either a push notification from a mobile app or a code received by text message or phone call.
