Security Tip
Did you know you can use pass phrases for your password? Radford's single sign-on allows you to use spaces, so you can use lyrics to a song (up to 64 characters), lines of poetry, or personal statements as long as you include spaces. Pass phrases are harder to crack and easier to remember than obscure passwords.

Banner Tip
The _ (underline) character represents a single character in your Banner query, while the % character represents any number of continuous characters.
