The OCPass website allows you to change your ObieID password quickly, with instant syncing to OCMail, and offers new features like the ability to send yourself a text message via SMS to recover your password.

Getting Started with OCPass

It is not necessary for you change your password during the enrollment process nor to enter your cell phone number for text message recovery if you prefer not to, but you must enroll before you can use OCPass to change your password the next time it is due to expire. 

To start the enrollment process for your ObieID, visit http://ocpass.oberlin.edu/ and follow the on screen instructions.

For assistance with the enrollment process, please contact the CIT Help Desk at x58197 or cit@oberlin.edu.

What if I don't have a cell phone or don't want to enter my number?
Entering your cell phone number for SMS text message recovery is completely optional. You don't need to enter your number to enroll.

I recieved an email notification from the OCPass system. What does this mean?
OCPass uses emails to notify you when your password has been changed successfully, when it's due to expire, and when your password security questions have been updated.

I manage a departmental or student org account. Do I need to enroll that account in OCPass?
Yes. All accounts, individual, departmental, and organizational, will need to be enrolled in OCPass. This means that if you're an administrator for any of these accounts, you may get more than one enrollment message, one for your group and one for your personal account.
