What is a NetID?

The NetID is a UM login credential that allows campus users to connect to many web-based systems and applications with the same login and password.

The NetID format is two letters (first initial, last initial) and six numbers (e.g. "ab123456"). An “e” on the end indicates that it is an employee (e.g. "ab123456e") NetID. The initial password is the last six digits of the University ID (the 790 number)
