2-Step Verification

2-Step Verification adds an extra layer of security by requiring you to enter a code (similar to a pin) after you enter your usual username and password to sign in. There are several ways that you can choose to receive this code (text message, free smart device app, voice call/ or printed back-up codes).

Forgotten/Expired Passwords

If you have forgotten your password or if it has expired, you can reset it by visiting rmu.edu/password

In order to reset your password, you will need to provide your freedom card number, last four digits of your social security number, along with your date of birth. Once you provide the information, you will gain instance access back into your account.

  1. Select the "Passwords" option in the top navigation bar, by moving the mouse over your name.
  2. Enter your current password, new password, and verification of your new password in the appropriate input boxes. Ensure that your new password meets the requirements in the "Password Requirements" box on the right.
  3. Click the check box to indicate your compliance with the Information Technology Acceptable Use Policy.
  4. Press the submit button and allow up to 5 minutes for all of your specified passwords to be reset.
