Change Your Password

Even after you link your WebAssign and Cengage accounts, the passwords for these accounts remain separate and must be changed separately.

Tip: For stronger passwords:
  • Use at least 10 characters.
  • Use a combination of uppercase and lowercase characters, numbers, and symbols.
  • Don't use personally identifiable information like names, ID numbers, phone numbers, or birthdays.

Change your Cengage Password

Keep your account secure by changing your Cengage password occasionally.

  1. Sign in to Cengage at https://login.cengage.com/cb/login.htm.

    Enter your Cengage email address (or username) and password. Then, click Sign In.

  2. At the top of the page, click Hello name > My Profile; then, click Edit.
  3. Type your new password in both password fields.

    Your Cengage password is case-sensitive, can be up to 17 characters long, and can include letters, numbers, and symbols.

  4. If you have not already done so, set any other required fields for your account.

    By default, student accounts are created without the following required fields, so you must set them the first time you update your account:

    • Security Question / Security Answer
    • School/Company/Institution
    • Time Zone
  5. Click Save Changes.

Change Your WebAssign Password

After linking your WebAssign and Cengage accounts, you are required to sign in with your Cengage account. For security, change the password for your WebAssign account occasionally to prevent another student from linking your WebAssign account to theirs and possibly copying your work.

Note: If WebAssign uses your institution's authentication server, use your school's method for changing your password.
  1. Sign in to WebAssign.
  2. Click My Options in the menu bar.
  3. Click the Personal Info tab if it is not already selected.
  4. Type your new password in both password fields.

    Your WebAssign password is case-sensitive, can be up to 30 characters long, and can include letters, numbers, spaces, and symbols.

  5. Enter your current password in the box at the bottom.
  6. Click Save.
