NetID - How to Reset a Forgotten NetID Password

If you have forgotten your NetID password but know your NetID, you can recover your 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.

Select Forgot Password on the Rice University Online Account Management System.

Enter your NetID, birthdate, and click Submit.
Reset your NetID password

You will then be asked to select your preferred notification method. After you make your choice, click Submit. A password reset token will be sent to you via your selected method. This token is only valid for 24 hours and can only be used once. If needed, you can generate another token.

Use Password Reset Token

Enter your NetID and the token and click Submit. Follow instructions.

If you need assistance throughout this process, contact the OIT Help Desk.
