How do I login? Can you fix it where my password does not expire?

All candidates receive an initial email with a username(WebID),which never changes and a password, which expires every 90 days.

No, the login process cannot be changed or simplified. The entire University of Mississippi’s faculty, staff, and students follow the same protocol of updating their password every 90 days. It is simple and takes less than a minute. The WCTP cannot update passwords. Each individual associated with the university is responsible for keeping their own password updated.
