This article explains how faculty, staff and students can change their NetID password.
If you do not remember your current password:
Step 1: Think About It
Think about your new password before you login to the NetID Profile Manager. Setting a strong password, such as a 10 character password for access to the PeopleSoft web application, requires careful thought to ensure that you will remember your new password. Before changing your password, it is highly recommended that you review the Strong Passwords page for tips on how to create strong passwords that are meaningful and memorable.
One example is to create a new password based on a pass phrase. Using the pass phrase technique is very effective; then select the first, or only the second, letter of the words in the phrase and include a random capital letter, numbers and a symbol. One example of a pass phrase is: "How will I ever remember a password now". This can easily be translated into a 10 character password as: Hwi!Er@pn8. The key point to remembering a new password is to come up with a pass phrase that is meaningful to you personally. Note: Do not use published examples of passwords as your password.
