NetID Passwords Expire Every 6 Months

Please remember UTHSC passwords expire every 6 months. This can impact your library access. The library login page ( will not mention it has expired, but your login will fail once your password has expired.

To set up mail forwarding for Exchange:

  • Instead, click on the link: “Click Here to Manage Your Account” under the Password field.
  • On the Exchange Account Management page, click “Manage Your Exchange Account.” and log in with your Exchange username and password.
  • Then click “Change Mail Forwarding.”
