The NetID is a universal and secure identifier, unique to you, required to access many secure Cornell online services, such as e-mail forwarding, CornellConnect, electronic library resources, personalized content on MyCornell, and more.
You can check to see if you have NetID by searching for your name in the Cornell directory. If you have a NetID and forgot your password or would like to change your password, you can do so on the Manage Your NetID page.
