Whenever you change your Tufts Password, be certain to also update it on any mobile phones, tablets, or computers where it has been previously saved.

  • The Tufts Password and Tufts Username combination means fewer account credentials to remember 
  • Always used in conjunction with your Tufts Username
  • Must adhere to the Tufts Complex Password Standards
Get Started: 

Your Tufts Password is created at the same time as your Tufts Username account, so you don’t need to request one. Passwords must adhere to the following Tufts Complex Password Standards:

  • Minimum password length: 8 characters (can contain more)
  • Passwords cannot contain parts of your account name or your full name that exceed two consecutive characters
  • Your previous 5 passwords are invalid and cannot be re-used
  • Passwords must contain one character from at least three of the following four categories:
    • English uppercase alphabet characters (A–Z)
    • English lowercase alphabet characters (a–z)
    • Base 10 digits (0–9)
    • Non-alphanumeric characters ( !@#$%^&*()-_+=;:´"}{[]|`~))

Change your Password

To change your password, use Tufts Tools, an online platform that allows you to manage your Tufts username and Tufts password, update your email forwarding settings, and more.

If you have forgotten your password, contact TTS at 617-627-3376.

TIP: Don't forget that your smartphone or other email-enabled device, such as a tablet, will need any saved passwords reset, as well. Do this as soon as possible any time you update or reset your Tufts Password.
