The Hamilton Password Policy enforces the use of the same password for your network account (the username and password to login to your computer) and your HillConnect account (your Gmail username and password). Other systems share these same account credentials.

Additional systems used for Hamilton academic or administrative purposes DO NOT use these same credentials, meaning we can encourage you to use strong passwords, but we can’t enforce password changes.

For example, systems like Wright Express that have “Hamilton College Data” associated with them, but are NOT connected to either  your network account (the username and password to login to your computer), or HillConnect (your Gmail email account), the following is expected:

  • you’ll voluntarily change your password in these systems annually.
  • when you do, you'll use a password that meets the requirements of our policy (or as close as you can depending on what the system allows)
  • you’ll use a different password for Wright Express then what you use for your network/email password.

Some of the more widely used systems that fall into this category are listed below. Please note: the list of systems in use at Hamilton is not exhaustive. If you are unsure if a system you use requires your Hamilton credentials, please contact the LITS Help Desk (315-859-4181, helpdesk@hamilton.edu).
