About Your Password - Change/Reset

  • By default, the Baruch Username password is in the following format:

    yyMmmdd of your DOB + Last 4 of SSN

    -The year (yy) are the last two numbers of your birth year.
    -The month (Mmm) are the first three letters of your birth month, with the first letter capitalized.
    -The day (dd) are two numbers of your birth date.

    For example, if you were born on January 1st, 1990 and your SSN was XXX-XX-1234, your default password would be:

    90Jan011234

    **Alternative Default Password for Students with Enrollment Prior to Summer 2013**
    The default account password for students with enrollment prior to Summer 2013 may be your birthday in the format YYMMDD.

  • If you have forgotten your password and contact the BCTC Helpdesk for technical assistance, they reset your password to your date of birth in the following sequence, YYMmmDD+Last 4 of SSN.  This password reset will effect access to all the items listed above, including the Student Degree Audit, student printing system, Newman Library Remote Access, wireless network, locker rental and Office365 e-mail systems as well.
  • If you would like to change your password from your date of birth in the format of YYMmmDD+Last 4 of SSN to another password, you should utilize our new myPassword service:
