How to Change an Organization/Department Account Password using MyNetID portal

Organization or Department accounts are assigned to a current Rice faculty or staff but not linked to the individual NetID password. The owner can change the account password in the MyNetID (Online Account Management System).

How to Change the Ownership of an Organization or Department account

  • If you are leaving your current department or changing roles within Rice, remember to shift the ownership of any Organization (department) accounts to a new account owner. This can be done by submitting a Help Desk ticket. 
  • If you find yourself in the position of taking over the ownership of an Organization (department) account, you can request ownership:
    • Submit a Help Desk ticket indicating an account ownership change - including the account name, previous owner (if known), and department
    • If the previous owner is unknown, the department administrator (approver) will need to verify the transfer of ownership.
