I received an email saying that I need to change my password. Is this real or a phishing scam?

I&TS will never ask you for your password.

Any email claiming that you must reply with your username and password is fraudulent, regardless of who it was sent by. All ePass updates are performed through https://www.plu.edu/epass/.

If you ever doubt the authenticity of an email regarding your password, always err on the side of caution. Contact the Help Desk at 253-535-7525 and ask for assistance in verifying the legitimacy of the email.

Can I use my nickname/alias to log into my account?

No, you must use your original ePass username to log into your account.
