When students graduate, what happens to their Office 365 account?
To begin using your RIC account (or to regain access to RIC email, Blackboard, and MyRIC), you will need to set an initial password. Set a new password by visiting passwordstation.ric.edu.
Please note that it will take up to 20 minutes for this change to take effect.
NOTE: To further enhance security for students, the system will require strong passwords (i.e., passwords containing 10-14 characters, no names or repeating characters and at least one of each of the following: upper case, lower case, number, and a special character).
If you require assistance, please contact the Help Desk (401-456-8803 or firstname.lastname@example.org) or visit the walk-in lab at Horace Mann Tech Center.
