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.
If you need help with your NetID, please call Alumni Affairs at 607-254-2288 between the hours of 8:00 AM and 4:00 PM Eastern Time, Monday - Friday and our staff will assist you. For help outside of these hours, please leave a message and a staff person will return your call the next business day.
