Common Questions

A: If you are not sure, please contact the help desk. They will be able to assist evaluating the content. You may also forward the email to the address SpamControl@CNYRIC.org for further evaluation.

Q: Application Passwords: My password has expired and I do not know the procedure to change it?
A: For SIS on the CNYRIC Screen, put in your ID on the ID line. Put in your 'old' password (the one you were using) on the password line. Tab down to new password, and put in a new password that you would like to use. The new password must be between 5 and 8 characters, and must include at least 1 numerical character. Next, you must enter the same new password on the verify line. After this has been completed, push enter. If you have properly entered a new password, you will get a message that your new password has been accepted. This is the password you will now use when you logon. Your new password will again expire in 90 days.

Upon proper authorization from the district contact person, a temporary password will be assigned forcing the customer to change their password.
