What is an account lockout?

To protect your information and university systems, a Locked account prevents anyone, including you, from logging into your CampusID account. Your CampusID account will be locked if certain systems detect too many failed login attempts.

An account lockout can happen when you have tried too many times to log in and have entered the wrong password when you have recently changed your password. Still, one or more of your devices has stored a previous password or when someone else is trying to log into your account with an incorrect password. 

Most locked accounts cases occur because there is an old password stored on your device after you’ve changed your CampusID password.

How to confirm whether your GSU account is locked

  1. Go to
  2. Click Forgot My Password.
  3. Enter your CampusID.
  4. If your CampusID is locked, an error message will state, “Your account is currently locked.”.
