Texas State provides each of its authorized users with a computer account, known as a NetID. This provides access to the university's information resources. You are the only authorized user for your NetID and password. Your password should be kept secure and private. You are responsible for any actions taken with your NetID and password. You may not use your NetID and password for commercial purposes. For additional rules and regulations related to your NetID and password see the Appropriate Use of Information Resources UPPS.
All NetIDs are subject to deactivation if they are not used (no login activity) for 180 days.
