EFI Password Script

The EFI password must remain on OC computers until students graduate from the university.

It has come to our attention that for a short time in 2014 the Grad Prep program has not been removing the EFI password from graduate computers consistently. If you have graduated and need to remove your EFI password, email supportcentral@oc.edu. We will send you a script to use to remove the password from your computer.

  • This script needs to be downloaded and run on the Mac side of your computer.
