Passwords for my.SMU accounts expire every 365 days. If you are experiencing trouble with your password you can go to our password tool at smu.edu/password and try changing your password. It is also recommended that you enroll in the password tool to setup security questions for your account. In the event that you forget your password or your account gets locked out you can answer the security questions and reset your password online.
