Can I Change My NetID?

This article applies to: NetIDs

Yes, your NetID can be changed, but only in very specific circumstances:

  • Your NetID was created incorrectly as a result of a data entry error made by the university.
  • There is a personal safety issue related to the continued use of your NetID.
  • Your legal name has been changed. Your NetID can be changed only after you have submitted your name change request to Human Resources (if you're an employee) or the University Registrar (if you're a student) and they have processed your request.

To request that your NetID be changed, please submit the IT Service Desk support form.
