NetID

Solution

Updating your NetID password

You need to change your NetID password once a year.

If you know your password (i.e., it's current and active), it's an easy procedure to change it:

Change your password (Faculty/Staff/Student/Affiliate)

  1. Visit NU Validate at www.northwestern.edu/login
  2. Enter your NetID and NetID password, then click Login
  3. Follow password change prompts and click Change Password

If you've forgotten your NetID password, or you accidentally let it expire without changing it, you'll need to reset it. If you have previously established answers to security questions, you can reset your NetID password yourself.

Self-reset your forgotten or expired password

  1. Visit NU Validate at www.northwestern.edu/login
  2. Enter your NetID, leave the password blank, and click Forgot Your Password?
  3. Answer two of your security questions
  4. Follow password change prompts and click Change Password
