Fisher User Account Change

Our Fisher usernames and passwords are gateways to many systems and resources at the college. Protecting your personal information is our highest priority and begins with adopting secure criteria for our passwords. Such practices are also crucial in order to meet information security standards, which allow us to continue collaborating with other institutions and businesses for our academic and research needs.

Fisher has partnered with the university’s Office of the Chief Information Officer (OCIO) to utilize the same password for both the university systems and Fisher systems. With this change, Fisher will be converting user accounts to match the university name.# format. When a user changes their university password at, it will automatically update their Fisher account.
