NetID - Changing your NetID Password

This document provides instructions to change your NetID account password.

Effective May 17, 2021, new Rice Google account holders will use their NetID password to login to Google. Individuals with Rice Google accounts that were established prior to May 17, 2021 will continue to have a separate Google password that differs from their NetID password until they change one of the passwords and then the passwords will automatically be synchronized. If individuals would prefer to have one less password to remember, they may synchronize them by resetting their password at

By changing your NetID password, you will be eliminating your separate Google password (if you had one before). You will use your NetID password to login to the Rice Google system.

Before proceeding, you must have enrolled in Duo Authentication.  Changing your NetID or recovering your NetID will require the use of Duo two-factor authentication.

If you are already enrolled using Duo Two-factor authentication, proceed to the Online Account Management System.

Step 1:  Log on to: Online Account Management Page, select Change Password. Refer to: Password Criteria and Account Recovery for password guideline details.

Step 2:  Choose your authentication method: (This example is mobile phone, select "Send Me a Push" button.)

Duo Authentication
On the mobile phone, a notification for a login request will appear.  Select Approve.

Step 3:  Select the Change Password option for NetID option. (Note: When you change your NetID password, if you had a separate Google password before, it will become the same as your NetID password. Read more.)

Enter your new password (making sure it meets the criteria listed below that field), re-type the password and click Submit. 

Select the NetID password button on the change password page.
