UARK Passwords

State legislative auditors and university regulations require that all UARK passwords be changed every 120 days.

Use Password Manager to activate your UARK account, change your password(s) and reset a password if you have forgotten it.

Password Guidelines

Your password:

  • Must be 8 to 32 characters in length
  • Must contain three out of four character types: lowercase (a-z), uppercase (A-Z), numbers (0-9), and special characters
  • Cannot contain spaces, tabs, or control characters
  • Cannot be reused within the last six changes
  • Cannot be any derivative of your username

Changing a UARK Password

University regulations require that all UARK passwords be changed every 120 days. You will receive reminder notices via email when it is time to change your password. If it reaches 120 days unchanged, your password will expire and you will no longer have access to services associated with your UARK account. Current and expired passwords can be changed at Password Manager.

Forgotten UARK Password

If you have forgotten your password, you can create a new password if you previously set a security question and answer in Password Manager. The answer is case-sensitive and a minimum of four characters.

If you have forgotten your password and have not set up a question and answer, go to one of the IT Help Desks, the General Access Computing Labs in the Arkansas Union or Mullins Library , or the Student Technology Center during business hours with your University ID. Students can also go to the Office of the Registrar, 146 Hunt Hall, 479-575-5451.

Off-site users should contact the IT Help Desk at 479-575-2905 for assistance.
