What’s a MyBrookdale NETID?

You can access and manage your MyBrookdale NETID password at https://netid.brookdalecc.edu.

Your Brookdale issued user name and default password were originally emailed in your admit and President’s Welcome letter. If you don’t remember your user name and/or default password and no longer have these communications, click on the NetID Icon represented by a “lock” (https://netid.brookdalecc.edu) from MyBrookdale QuickLaunch navigation to look up your account information.  If you already know your user name and password, continue with the following steps·
