What is a NetID?

This article applies to: NetIDs


A Network ID (or NetID) is a personal, unique identifier assigned to you. It consists of your initials followed by one or more numbers. You use it, along with a password, to obtain access to online services, such as email and administrative systems.

A password is required with your NetID to ensure that no one but you can access your confidential Cornell information. Your NetID and password also give you access to services that are exclusive to the Cornell community.
