TU NetID

Your NetID grants access to TU resources, like your financial information and grades, and it should be kept confidential. Don’t share it with anyone! No one at TU will ever ask for your NetID password so be cautious of “phishing” emails asking you to enter your NetID password. Visit the phishing web page for more information.
