New self-service password reset coming to MyAUM

Auburn University at Montgomery’s Office of Information Technology Services will implement a new self-service password reset tool for the MyAUM portal on Friday, March 8. 

Students, faculty and staff visiting the MyAUM portal will be prompted to set up their individual self-service password settings. At a minimum, users must set up five new security questions in order to access the portal. Users will have the option of setting up additional reset methods.

Implementation of this new tool will enhance security and enable users to reset a forgotten password at any time.

Users who experience difficulties may contact the ITS Help Desk for assistance at 334-244-3500 or helpdesk@aum.edu..
