Franklin & Marshall NetID

 What is a NetID?

Your NetID is an automatically assigned, unique electronic identifier for each active member of the Franklin & Marshall College community. Having a NetID does not automatically give access to all computer systems or services–access can be defined and provisioned by the service provider or system administrator.

Who is eligible for a NetID?
NetIDs are automatically assigned to all students, faculty, and professional staff.

What is a NetID for?
NetIDs are used to log into a number of Franklin & Marshall College web services, such as email, Google Apps for Education, Inside F&M, and eDisk.

How do I find out what my NetID is?
New students will be sent their NetID and password shortly after making their deposit to attend F&M. The information will be sent to their personal e-mail address that is on file with the Office of Admisson. Professional staff members will have NetIDs and passwords emailed to their immediate supervisors upon hire. Faculty members will have NetIDs and passwords emailed to their department coordinators upon hire. We strongly suggest that all members of the college community change their passwords upon arrival at the College and frequently after that.

How do I change my password?
You can visit and log in with your old password. You will then be able to select a new password.

I forgot my NetID/password. How do I find out what it is?
You can contact the Help Desk at 717-358-6789 or visit the ITS Help Desk in person on the ground floor of the Harris Center. Please have your college ID with you. The ITS Help Desk staff can look up your NetID and, if necessary, reset your password. Your password is private. Never give it out to anyone.

Can I change my NetID?
NetIDs are only changed in the small number of cases where a typographical error in the spelling of a person's name has occurred or the NetID spells an offensive word. Changing a NetID requires a great deal of coordination, effort, and care to ensure that a person's access is not unduly interrupted and that the change is properly reflected through all systems which use NetIDs. At this time, it is not possible to select your own NetID.
