NetID Password Expiration

For security reasons, your NetID password is only valid for 365 days. Most University systems, including Webcampus and MyNevada, will not inform you that your password has expired. Instead, the systems will only tell you that your username or password are incorrect.

How do I know if my NetID password has expired?

The Office of Information Technology sends out multiple emails when your password is about to expire. Those emails are sent two weeks before, one week before, and one day before your password expires. These emails will direct you to the NetID Security Tool where you can reset your password. If you are unable to reset your password using the NetID Security Tool you can contact the OIT Support Center and a technician will be able to assist you.

  • If you are a student, the email will be sent to your preferred email address in MyNevada.
  • If you are an employee, the email will be sent to your preferred email address in Workday.

If you log in to a computer on campus that is connected to the UNR network, you will be warned that your password is going to expire, or be notified that your password is already expired. Once the computer notifies you of the password expiration, you will be asked to reset the password before the login process finishes.
