Set, change, or reset your IU List password

On this page:


Before you begin

Note:
An IU List password is not necessary to log into IU List. Using the IU Credential Login button (on the old web interface) or the IU Login button (on the new interface), log in with your IU username and passphrase. If you are not an eligible IU user, or need to log in with a non-primary address, log in with your email address and IU List password. IU Guest accounts need to use the IU List password login. For more about logging in, see About IU List.

The password feature is only used with the web component of IU List, if you wish to use it. Important list options are not configurable over email, so list owners may need to use the website. You can use email commands instead of the website to set some options; note that most administrative email commands require an email response to an IU List confirmation message.

Each campus has a separate administrative website, but your IU List password (if you set one) will work for all of them:

Campus IU List web interface
IU Bloomington https://list.indiana.edu/
IUPUI https://list.iupui.edu/
IU East https://list.iue.edu/
IU Kokomo https://list.iuk.edu/
IU Northwest https://list.iun.edu/
IU South Bend https://list.iusb.edu/
IU Southeast https://list.ius.edu/
IUPUC https://list.iupuc.edu/
University-wide https://list.iu.edu/

How the 2021 upgrade affects IU List passwords

Important:

On May 16, 2021, UITS will complete an upgrade to the IU List service. All lists will be migrated from their temporary pilot domains back to the standard campus domains (for example, list.iupui.edu).

To prepare for the final migration, UITS asks list owners to refrain from making changes to lists from Friday, May 14 at 5pm through Sunday, May 16 at 9am. Any changes made during this time will be lost.

For more, see About the 2021 IU List upgrade.

IU List passwords will not be migrated to the new web environment. If you need or want to use a separate IU List password, you will need to re-register after the relevant campus domain is migrated to the pilot environment. You may use the same password you had before as long as it meets the requirements. If you set a new password, you'll use it only on the new web user interface (that is, if you need to log into a campus website that has not yet been migrated, use your old IU List password).

Once you've set an IU List password in the pilot domain, to use it to log in, from the pilot website for your campus, click Login locally in the upper right.

Note:
If you're not sure whether your campus domain has been migrated, see the schedule in About the 2021 IU List upgrade.

Password requirements

Important:
Do not use your IU passphrase as your IU List password; doing so could compromise your information and other data on the IU network.

IU List passwords must meet the following requirements:

  • New (pilot) web interface:
    • At least eight characters long
    • Contains at least one uppercase and one lowercase letter
    • Contains at least one non-alphabetic character or digit
    • Does not contain any common dictionary word of four or more letters
  • Old web interface:
    • At least eight characters long
    • Contains at least one number and one letter

Set a password

If you need or wish to use an IU List password:

If the relevant campus has been migrated to the pilot domain, at the upper right of the pilot IU List page for that campus, click Login locally. At the bottom of the page, click First login? Enter your email address, and click Request first password. IU List will send you an email message; follow the directions in the message to create an IU List password.

If the campus has not yet been migrated, at the IU List page for the relevant campus, click First login?, and then enter your email address. IU List will send you an email message; follow the directions in the message to create an IU List password.

Change or reset your password

Change your password

If the relevant campus has been migrated to the pilot domain, to change a password, use the directions below for resetting a forgotten password.

If the campus has not yet been migrated, log into IU List and click Your preferences. In the "Changing your password" section, select a new password and then click Submit.

Reset a forgotten password

If the relevant campus has been migrated to the pilot domain, at the upper right of the pilot IU List page for that campus, click Login locally. At the bottom of the page, click Lost password? Enter your email address, and click Request new password. IU List will send you an email message; follow the directions in the message to create an IU List password.

If the campus has not yet been migrated, from the IU List login screen, click Lost password?, and then enter your email address. An email message will be sent to that address, with a link allowing you to choose a new password.

Locked accounts

The IU List system will lock your account after a predetermined number of failed logins, as prevention against unauthorized attempts to control your lists. If this happens, you will need to follow the above sequence to reset your password; you can choose the same password again.
