Passwords

Using myPassword

SFA uses Active Directory to manage access to mySFA, networked computers, Exchange e-mail, and other SFA systems. myPassword, located at https://mypassword.sfasu.edu, is used to manage the Active Directory password. It is important to set up your myPassword profile so that you can reset your password in the event you forget it. Once logged into your myPassword profile, you can set three security questions. These security questions will allow you to resolve password issues without having to contact SFA.

If faculty/staff forget their mySFA password and have not set up a myPassword profile, they must contact the Help Desk at (936) 468-1212 to have their password reset.

If students forget their mySFA password and have not set up a myPassword profile, they must contact the Office of the Registrar at (936) 468-2501.

E-mail Passwords

SFA uses Exchange for Faculty\Staff e-mail. Exchange uses the Active Directory username and password (the password used to log into the SFA domain and mySFA).

To change or reset your Exchange password, you must change your Active Directory password, which is also used to log into mySFA, SFA computers, and other SFA systems. Go to https://mypassword.sfasu.edu and login to your myPassword profile to change or reset your Active Directory password.

If faculty/staff forget their mySFA password and have not set up a myPassword profile, they must contact the Help Desk at (936) 468-1212 to have their password reset.

Student email accounts use Office 365 services for email.

If students forget their mySFA password and have not set up a myPassword profile, they must contact the Office of the Registrar at (936) 468-2501.
