Issue Date: 09-16-2016

Important: If you do not reset your password between September 13th 8:00am and September 21st 8:00am your NSU account will be locked.

This requirement is part of NSU’s overall IT security protocol and strengthens the protection of the university’s data system. Nova Southeastern University is committed to maintaining a secure technology environment. One way the university ensures privacy is through the Enterprise Username and Password policy, which requires all users to routinely change their single sign-on password.

  • SharkPass
  • 1NSU (Wireless Access)
  • Security access to various NSU Web Applications (Clinical applications and Banner will not be affected, they utilize a different password criteria.)

To change your password, you may utilize one of the following two options:

  1. If you are on any of the university campuses with an NSU computer, you may use CTRL+ ALT+ DEL and select the “Change a password” option. Enter your old password and then create a new password as instructed.                                                                                                                   k1
  2. If you work remotely or are a Mac users you may go directly to https://adfs.nova.edu/adfs/portal/updatepassword or sharkmail.nova.edu and click on 'Change Password' at the bottom right of the page. Enter your old password and then create a new password as instructed.                                                                                                                                p1

Your unique password must not have been previously used and must follow the criteria below:

  1. Be a minimum of eight (8) characters in length;
  2. Contain at least three (3) characters from the following categories:
  • Uppercase letter (A-Z)
