Change a MacMurray Network Password

MacMurray network accounts are used for accessing network resources as well as your email. For staff and faculty, this would be your @mac.edu account. For students, this would be your @student.mac.edu account.

The following steps will allow you to change your network/email password from anywhere, on or off campus. If you have forgotten your MacMurray network password, you can reset it through SMOP.

  1. Visit www.mac.edu/password.
  2. You will need to enroll if you have not used the SMOP service yet.
    • Click on "Enroll" in the menu on the left.
    • Enter your user name and current password. If you are a member of the staff or faculty, select "mac.edu" as your domain. If you are a student, select "student.mac.edu."
    • You should be directed to the enrollment page. If not, click on "Enroll" in the menu on the left.
    • Answer at least two of the security questions but no more than five. Click "Enroll."
    • Click "Continue."
  3. Select "Change Password" in the menu on the left.
  4. Enter your user name, current password, and your new password twice.
