Your NetID password provides access to much of your private information at
A good password is easily remembered but hard to guess. Nonsense words,
unusual acronyms, and deliberate misspellings help make good passwords.
Do not choose passwords that have a personal reference to yourself, such
as your nickname or a family member's name.
Passwords must be at least 8 characters long, contain at least two types
of characters (lowercase, uppercase, numbers, or symbols), and not be based on
dictionary words. Some NetID accounts require a stronger password; you
will be notified when submitting this form if this applies to you.
