We sent this email at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 23, 2023, to students who were enrolled in Fall 2023 classes and didn't have a security passphrase on file.

Dear [first],

Please take a moment to set an easy-to-remember security passphrase.

Stating your passphrase is the quickest way to verify your identity and get the answers you need when contacting a campus office by phone or in person without a photo ID.

Set Your Security Passphrase (Buff Portal)

Remember: Do not share your security passphrase with anyone.

To allow a parent, guardian, sponsor or other third party to discuss or view parts of your education record, set up FERPA consent to release and/or CU guest access for them.

Please let us know if you have any questions.
