Changing Your FalconNet Password with FalconLink


FalconLink is the universal application launch pad for Cedar Crest College's many applications.  Within FalconLink you will have the ability to change your FalconNet password, access your Cedar Crest Online (Canvas) courses, connect with Microsoft Office applications after signing in with your FalconNet account, MyCedarCrest, and much more.  Additionally, these services will all be linked via your login credentials to allow for either single sign on, or saved sign on capabilities.

This process resets/changes passwords for FaclonNet - which encompasses​ the following systems:

  • Network Computer Logins - immediate.
  • Canvas (Cedar Crest Online LMS)​ - immediate.
  • Office 365 (E-Mail, Teams, Outlook, OneNote, OneDrive etc) - can take up to 30 minutes to take effect.
  • Astra Schedule - immediate.
  • Jenzabar - immediate.
  • EZproxy (Remote Library Database and Journal) access - immediate
  • Wireless Network (FalconNet) access - immediate
  • External systems including: IT Support Center, ALEKS, Adobe Cloud Central, Barnes and Noble, Examsoft, Handshake, Interfolio, Maxient, Portfolium, Transact (Dining) - may take a few minutes.

Please note: When you change your FalconNet password, you will have to change your password in each associated system such as FalconNet Wifi, Outlook on your phone, etc.  Failure to do so may result in a locked account.

It does not impact these systems:

  • MyCedarCrest
  • e2Campus
