How to Reset Your USC Upstate Password
Currently enrolled students, newly accepted students and
students who have been away from the University for no more than a semester can
use the website password.uscupstate.edu to reset their student password. If
you are unable to reset your password online, you can reset your password in
person by visiting the ITS Help Desk in Administration 109. Make sure to bring
your student ID card or driver's license. The Help Desk is unable to reset
passwords over the phone or via email.
If you are on a University computer on campus, press control, alt and delete and then choose "change a password" to create a new password.
If you are off campus or using a personal computer, follow these steps: Resetting your password from off campus
Currently, faculty and staff members who have forgotten their password are unable to reset their passwords online. To reset your password you will
need to either come to the help desk or contact the administrative assistant in
your department to request a new password.
Step 1Enter your USC Upstate network username in the box, as shown below. Your
username is the first part of your email address (whatever comes before
@email.uscupstate.edu). It is also the same as your Blackboard username. If you do not know your username, please go to https://my.sc.edu/ and click on " View my IDs and manage my passwords " under the Personal section and log in using your Self Service Carolina account information. If you are a newly accepted student, you should
find your network username towards the bottom of your acceptance letter. Once
you have entered your username, click the continue button.
Step 2Enter your VIP ID number in the
box, as shown below. Your VIP ID number is the eight-digit, randomly assigned
number used to login to Self Service Carolina. Newly accepted students should have
their VIP ID number in their acceptance letter. After entering your VIP ID
number, complete the Turing Test by entering the sequence of characters found at
the bottom of the page in the Word Verification section, as shown below. Once
you have entered your VIP ID and completed the Word Verification, click the continue button.
Step 3Finally, enter your new
password, as shown below. After entering your password in the first box, you
must enter it again in the second box for verification purposes. Passwords must
be at least six characters long. It is highly suggested that you don't
use anything easy to guess as your password, such as your significant other's
name, your pet's name, your name, your birthday, etc. Once you have entered
your password in both boxes, click the reset password button once.
