Change Your WebAssign Password

You should change your password occasionally to ensure the security of your WebAssign account.

You can't use this procedure to change your Cengage password.

Note: If WebAssign uses your institution's authentication server, use your school's method for changing your password.
Note: Changes to your WebAssign and Cengage accounts are not synced with each other.

Depending on your school, different password rules apply. When you change your password, the minimum password rules for your school are displayed. Your password is case-sensitive, so, for example, 1AmCa3s@r is not the same as 1amca3s@r.

Tip: Your school's password rules specify only the minimum requirements for your password. You can use the following guidelines to create a stronger password:
  • Use at least 10 characters. Increasing the length of your password increases its strength exponentially. Your password can be up to 30 characters long.
  • Use spaces. Using a phrase is one way to increase the length of your password without making it more difficult to remember.
  • Use both uppercase and lowercase characters.
  • Use two or more numbers.
  • Use two or more symbols.

Do not include personally identifiable information like names, ID numbers, phone numbers, or birthdays in your password.
