Reset Your NetID Password / Set Up Account


The UT Dallas NetID user account is used to access online services and campus compute resources. The NetID Self-Service Portal allows users to set or reset their password for their NetID account without the need to contact the OIT Helpdesk. See the section below for instructions on using the NetID Self-Service Portal.

All UTD Staff, Faculty, and students must set a new UTD security compliant password each year. You will receive emails notifications one month, one week, and one day before your password expires.
