A Key to Accessing Electronic Resources

Request a NetID Change

You can request to change your existing NetID. All requests are subject to approval by MSU Information Technology. There is a $10.00 fee to change your NetID. The fee is waived if the change is due to a legal name change.

Download the NetID Change Request Form (PDF) or pick one up on campus at the ID Office, International Center, 427 N. Shaw Lane, Room 170, East Lansing, MI 48824.

Fill out and submit the form for processing.


Once your form is received by the ID Office it will be reviewed. If your NetID Change request is approved, you will be contacted by ID Office staff to schedule an appointment (in person or by phone) to change your NetID.

Once your NetID is changed, you can expect a delay of up to 5 business days in your login access to some MSU systems.
