Identity Management, NetID character rules

What are the requirements for a NetID?
NetIDs follow the following rules:
  • Minimum of 3 characters
  • Maximum of 8 characters
  • Valid first character: letter (a-z)
  • Valid subsequent characters: letters (a-z), number (0-9), dash (-)**

    **The dash is no longer assigned; some NetIDs have dashes from a legacy ruleset.

We do not reassign old NetIDs and it needs to be unique across the entire university system (cannot be used on another campus).
