Before you can start surfing the web to find all the great computing resources and training classes offered at UT, you need to get your Network ID and your password.
Once you are admitted to the University of Tennessee, you will be assigned a Network ID (NetID). Your NetID is a part of your official record at UT and permits secure access to a variety of applications and services, including:
Before you can use the university network, you must look up your assigned NetID, log in, and set up your own password. You will have the opportunity to register for classes during your first advising session, but you must have a valid password to do so.

It will take 15-20 minutes for your new password to take effect.
Additional information about changing your password is available in the OIT Knowledge Base.
