NetID - Changing your NetID Password

This document provides instructions on how 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

Note: 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 be enrolled in Duo Authentication.  Changing your NetID password will require the use of Duo two-factor authentication.

If you are already enrolled using Duo Authentication, proceed to the Online Account Management System.

Step 1:  Log on to: Online Account Management Page.
Step 2:  Choose your authentication method: Send me a push, Call me, or Enter a passcode. (The example in this document uses a mobile phone with the "Send Me a Push" button.)
