Password Reset Survival Kit
For security purposes, UT Tyler employees are required to change their UTTYLER password
periodically. If you need to reset your password, please visit help.uttyler.edu and click on the purple Employee Password Reset tile.
What to do after changing your Employee Password
NOTE: The following factors that need to be taken into consideration are only after the password is successfully changed or reset.
- Make sure you LOG OFF the computer and LOG IN with the new password
- Bring the laptop to campus and connect it to our network with a hard wired connection (network cable)
- Once connected, login to the device with the new password
- Click on the wireless icon on the Task Bar (right-hand corner of the screen) and make sure UT Tyler DirectAccess Connection is present
- UT Tyler DirectAccess Connection MUST say "Action needed"
- If "Action needed" is present, you DO NOT have to take further action with DirectAccess
- Press Ctrl+Alt+Delete and select Lock
- Sign back in with the new password
- Bring the Surface Pro to campus to have it plugged into our network
- Because this device requires a dongle, you can bring it to BUS 102 and one of our IT staff will be more than happy to connect the device to our network
- Once connected, login to the device with your new password
