  3. Under Relationships with a Parental Portal Account, make sure you have selected the proper account.

How to use a Parent or Guardian account to access MyPack Portal

What is my Unity ID?
Each student is assigned a Unity ID composed of letters (and sometimes numbers) up to 8 characters long. Usually, it is your first and middle initials followed by up to six letters from your last name, but if that has already been assigned to someone else, the last characters may be substituted with numbers.
Your Unity ID will be used to log into the MyPack Portal, and your NC State google email account.

Example: George William Abernathy’s would be “gwaberna.” If someone has already been assigned gwaberna, George might be assigned gwabern2, gwabern3, etc.

Setting Up a New Unity Password


f you are experiencing problems accessing websites, applications, or resources with your Unity username and password, you may need to perform a password reset to regain access to your account. There are two steps to reset your password: resetting and setting a new password.Visit the Reset Password page.
Enter your Unity Username and select Submit.
Provide the answer to the security question and select Submit.

If you were able to answer your question correctly, your password would be reset to its default value. You will use this default value for the current password field on the password change form.

Your default password is an 8-digit number composed of the last four digits of your Campus ID number (aka Employee ID or Student ID Number), followed by your 2-digit birth month and 2-digit birthday. You will have 30 minutes to use the default password to set a new password.

Note: The default password will not allow you to sign in to any NC State services, and you must change your password from the default before you can log in.

How to Creating a New Password

You must create a new password as the system will not allow you to re-use old passwords. The password requirements must be met, and strong password recommendations are also provided.

  1. Visit the Password Change Form
  2. Enter your Unity Username.
  3. For your Current Password, enter your default password as described above.
  4. Enter your new password into the New Password.
  5. Enter the same new password in the Confirm New Password field.
  6. Click Submit.

You should receive a successful password change message in about a minute. If you receive any error messages about your password, make the necessary corrections to your new password and re-submit.

Once your password has been changed, it may take up to an hour to update across all systems. In most cases, the new password will work almost immediately with the MyPack Portal or any Shibboleth login, but it can take 5-10 minutes to update your NC State Gmail account. If the password doesn’t work for Gmail, please wait 10 minutes and try again.
