NetID FAQs

Why does Texas State ask for me to validate my Personal Email Address to Reset NetID Passphrases?

A validated personal email address is a non-Texas State email address used to assist with resetting NetID passphrases. It must be validated before you can use the Forgot Password process. This IT security feature helps Texas State know that you are indeed who you say that you are in order to reset your password and use Texas State Online Services.
