Students Academic Information System (SAIS) is an application that provides academic information for the students. The security policy applied by our university requires the students to renew their SAIS password based on the university’s policy. This study aims to analyze SAIS users’ behavior by using six variables adapted from Protection Motivation Theory (PMT), which are Perceived Severity, Perceived Vulnerability, Fear, Response Efficacy, Response Cost and Intentions. The data was collected from 288 SAIS users as respondents. The data analysis method used is Structural Equation Modeling (SEM) analysis. The study result shows that the factors affecting the intention of changing the passwords are perceived severity, fear, response efficacy, and response cost.
