Over time a netid may not reflect a person accurately based on name and other changes. Faculty and staff may request a netid reissue if their current netid differs significantly from their name due to a legal name change. Students may request a netid reissue when needed to more accurately reflect their gender identity.
Please note that a netid reissue affects a broad range of campus services and each request will be reviewed. Simply not liking your UCSB netid does not qualify for a netid reissue. If your current netid shows all or part of your first or last name and that has not changed, you do not qualify for a netid reissue.
You can request a UCSB netid reissue by contacting one of the campus help desks.
