What is TRACKS?

TRACKS is Florida Institute of Technology's account system that provides a single account and password for access to all University services granted to a user.

Current Students, Faculty, and Staff

Your TRACKS account and password is used for Florida Tech email, PAWS (Panther Access Web System), Computer Labs in the Olin Engineering and Olin Life Sciences buildings, the Computer Sciences open lab (EC272), all Instructor Workstations in multimedia classrooms, and all desktops using the FLTECH domain to log on to the campus network. What can TRACKS access?

Prospective Students

Your TRACKS limited account and password is used only for PantherPass (Online Check-in) and PAWS (Panther Access Web System).

Former Students (Alumni and Students who have previously attended Florida Tech)

Your TRACKS limited account and password is used only for PAWS (Panther Access Web System) and @my.fit.edu email provided by Google Applications. For former students who do not have a TRACKS limited account and know their Florida Tech ID number and PIN will be able to create an account by visiting http://www.fit.edu/paws and clicking "Create your Account".

TRACKS Account Password Expiration and Lockout Policies

A TRACKS password will automatically expire after 180 days. To reset your TRACKS password, visit this link:https://tracks.fit.edu/passwdchange/options.php. Also, TRACKS account will be locked out for 10 minutes after 10 invalid login attempts.

TRACKS Password Complexity Requirements

In order to maintain the integrity and safety of the information on our network, password complexity requirements have been established by Information Technology. This means that when you reset the password for your TRACKS account, it must meet these requirements in order to be acceptable. These requirements are as follows:

  • The password must be at least 8 characters in length.
  • The password must not repeat any of your last 7 passwords.
  • The password must be comparatively different from your previous passwords (ie - you can't just change a letter.)
  • The password must contain at least 3 character classes:
    • Upper Case Characters [A-Z]
    • Lower Case Characters [a-z]
    • Numeric Characters [0-9]
    • Symbols

What can my TRACKS account access?

Current students, staff, and faculty can use their TRACKS accounts to access many services at Florida Tech. Your TRACKS account and password are used for Florida Tech Google Applications, Florida Tech email (@fit.edu/@my.fit.edu), Computer Labs in the Olin Engineering and Olin Life Sciences buildings, the Computer Sciences open lab (EC272), and all desktops using the FLTECH domain to log on to the campus network.

The following table indicates which systems the TRACKS account is used to access and where these systems are located. (As new systems are integrated with TRACKS all the time, this list does not intend to be exhaustive.)
