How to Change NetID Password

Note: NetID users are required to update their NetID passwords periodically. If a password is less than 16 characters in length, the password will expire after a calendar year. Passwords with 16 or more characters will expire every four years.
After submitting your new password, it will take approximately seven minutes for it to fully upload to A&M’s server. This means that you may experience some log in trouble during that seven minutes. However, if the log in trouble does not resolve itself, contact Help Desk Central at (979) 845-8300 for assistance.
