Password Reset

SIMON is Stern's Account Management system. SIMON allows you change your Stern Password and set up password recovery options as well as create a personal address. 

SIMON is accessible to Stern students, staff, and faculty. Access Simon from Sternlinks.

Click on Account Info from the top menu bar, then Change Password. Follow the instructions on the Change Password screen to enter your new password then click Submit. You must have at least 8 characters in your password. Your Password must include at least one letter, one number and one special characters such as !, @, #, $, &, etc.. 

In keeping with security best practices, Stern IT enforces password changes for all Stern accounts every year. You will receive email notifications when your password is scheduled to expire. 

 1st Notification
  1 month before expiration
 2nd Notification
  2 weeks before expiration
 Final Notification    
  Everyday, beginning 7 days before expiration 

To stop the notifications, change your password in SIMON.  If you do not change your password before the expiration date, you will not be able to access your Stern email or other applications until the password is changed. After password expiration, access will be limited to SIMON password functionality until your password has been changed.
