What is a NetID?
MSU NetIDs are assigned to all current faculty, staff, students and retirees. A NetID is a unique alphanumeric identifier auto-generated from the user’s name.
Your NetID is your personal identifier at MSU and serves as your login to many university computing and networking services. Your NetID also determines your MSU email address which is firstname.lastname@example.org (e.g. the NetID sparty would have the email address email@example.com).
