Password Information

If you have forgotten your password, or when attempting to log into Blackboard, you get a "Could not login. Incorrect Password Provided" error, please contact the Technology Support Center at (660) 543-4357.

UCM students have two primary passwords:

  1. MyCentral password - used for MyCentral
  2. Network password - used to access campus computers and Blackboard

Both passwords are intially set to a randomized default value.

You may find your network username at any time by logging on to MyCentral, and navigating to the "Network Password Change" or "Password Change" tab.  At the lower left corner of that page, you will see your network username displayed (your three initials + last four digits of your 700# + a single digit tie-breaker, ex. mxh12340).

You may submit a new network password at any time in that same location.  Simply type your desired network password twice, and hit submit.  Please be sure to allow up to an hour for your new network password to take effect across all systems. 

If you have any trouble with this process, please contact the Technology Support Center at 660-543-4357, or email
