Banner Web Security Makes PIN-to-Password Change
To improve security, VSU faculty, staff, and student users of
the campus Banner Web system will be required as of February 15 to
change their numeric PIN to an alpha-numeric password when first
signing on the Banner Web via the Login link reached by users
through a web browser. Everyone will then be required to change
their password at least once every 180 days. This change only
addresses Banner-Web (not GUI) PIN.
On February 15th all Banner-Web PINs (currently 6 digits) expire. Upon login on or after February 15th, each user will be notified that PIN has expired at which time the user must choose an 8 character password consisting of letters and numbers.
Users that need assistance with Banner accounts should contact the Registrar's Office (333-5727).
Web pages that demonstrate the PIN to Password change including instructions can be found on the Helpdesk websites:
