Using the Self Service Password Reset Request

The Self Service Password Resetting utility (SSPR) has been designed to allow current affiliates of The University of North Carolina at Greensboro (UNCG) to reset their computer account passwords. UNCG affiliates consist of faculty, staff, and students who have current accounts at UNCG. SSPR will only be useful for those who have non-disabled active accounts. If an account status in Banner is not active or is not acknowledged, users will receive the error message The system has no service request data for you when trying to use this utility.
