Tufts Complex Password Standards require that you change your Tufts Password every 180 days. Starting 14 days before your current password expiration, you'll receive daily email notification that will give you the option to change your current password.
Smart computing practices suggest that you don't procrastinate and take advantage of the opportunity to change your password before the final day.
