  2. Change your K-State eID password at
  3. Update your engineering password at

  4. For computers managed by CECS, log out and back into your computer.
    (IMPORTANT: Laptops must be on-campus and online)
  5. Update saved passwords in your mail client and other applications on computers, laptops and mobile devices.
  6. Re-enable wireless access on your devices.
  7. When on campus, update the wireless password on any wireless device that

  • I am having trouble setting my new eID password

    See the K-State Password FAQ

  • The engineering password page is not working

    Ensure you are using your eID (the part before the "" in your email address) and your new password (not your old one).

  • Outlook issues

If your outlook stops syncing try and load outlook in safe mode to force outlook to prompt for a new password. 

Bring up a run dialog box: Hit windows key + r

type outlook /safe

This will load outlook in safe mode. You have to choose your outlook profile. Then after a minute or two it should pop up a dialogue box to enter your email and password. Check the box to remember your password. After it loads and syncs, close outlook and then open normally. If it prompts again for a password, enter it and make sure the check box to save credentials is checked.
