Please keep in mind that your faculty password expires every 170 days. If you are using a personal computer, you will not receive a notification, so you may want to create an Outlook reminder to reset your password. If you need to reset your password, you can return to reset.gcu.edu anytime.
There is a new reset process that is being rolled out to students and faculty over the coming months. If you are part of the pilot test group, we recommend that you utilize the new password reset process.
If the new password reset process was unsuccessful, or you are unable to answer the authentication questions, you can go through the old password reset process below!
To reset your password, you must first be registered for password reset.
If you have already registered, navigate to https://reset.gcu.edu/.
Select Change Password.
Next, click I am Faculty.
Enter your username and click Proceed.
Enter your PIN and click Submit.
After answering your security questions, click Submit.
Once you are able to verify your identity, you can choose a new password. The password must meet the following criteria:
- 8-16 character in length; and contain
- One upper case letter;
- One lower case letter; and
- One number.
Also, do not include your name or date of birth in your password. Including your personal information will result in the error "Exception has been thrown by target of an invocation.”
Lastly, avoid using your GCU username as part of your password. Otherwise you will receive the error message, “Your password cannot contain your username.”
To confirm your password, enter it one more time and click Submit.
You will receive a message confirming your password was successfully reset. To log in to your account with your new password, click the Go to the Student & Faculty Portal link.
