Can I change my NetID and/or name with OIT?

The NetID is chosen for you by an automated system that analyzes all current and previous NetIDs.

Your NetID may be changed. If the change is due to a legal name change, please ensure the change is first registered by either Human Resources or Student Services before requesting this service from OIT. Please note that if you are both a student and an employee, the change must be made with Human Resources first, otherwise any name change to your student record will continue to be overwritten by your name on file with Human Resources. 

After you have followed the steps above, use the link below to request a change to your NetID and/or name with OIT.
