NetID Password Changes

There are two major tools available associated with NetID password changes.

  • The Manage NetID Password Tool which is for users who know their password and wish to change it. It can also be used to update and/or set Security Questions if the user is a student.
  • The Forgotten Password Tool is for student users who forgot their password. This tool can only be used if the user has previously set up their security questions.
How the service might be used:
