Service Eligibility

Help Desk services are available to all current UCA students, faculty, and staff. We cannot assist the general public with technical support issues. If you call the Help Desk, please be prepared to supply your full name and UCA ID number (listed on your UCA BearCard). If you visit us in person at Math and Computer Science Room 103, please be prepared to show us your UCA BearCard.


Your UCA password must be changed every 90 days or it will expire. You will receive warnings via your UCA email account every day beginning 14 days in advance of your password expiring.

If your UCA password does expire, you have three options for resetting it:

  1. Change your password anytime by visiting
  2. During business hours, visit the IT Help Desk in person with your UCA BearCard.
  3. During business hours, call the IT Help Desk with all of the following information available:
    • your full name
    • your UCA ID number (on your BearCard)
    • your date of birth
    • the last four digits of your social security number

For security reasons, any issues regarding passwords are treated differently than normal technical support issues and require additional layers of identity verification. The Help Desk will not reset or supply passwords via email.

Personal Computers

Our services are limited to university-owned technology. Therefore, we are prohibited from working on personally-owned computers and devices. However, we are more than willing to answer questions and recommend solutions for any problems you may have.

Tips When Contacting Us

  • Please describe your issue with as much detail as possible. Non-specific questions like “Why doesn’t the Internet work?” are impossible to answer. The more details you can provide about your issue, the better prepared we are to serve you and resolve your issue.
  • If you are sending information to a particular person at the Help Desk, please specify that person in your message.
