Access to the University's computing network and online services are controlled through the NetID user name and a password.
- NetID is derived from user name and no two NetIDs are the same.
- Applicants for admission to SU receive information about their NetID via US Mail from Office of Financial Aid a few weeks after submitting their application.
- New UC students receive information about their NetID via US Mail or in person, corresponding with the manner in which they register.
- Faculty and staff receive information about their NetID from their hiring department, as part of the process of becoming an employee of the University.
Before you can access university systems such as MySlice and Blackboard, you must "activate" your netid. During activation, you create a password for your account and set up an SMS cell phone number for recovery (US and Canada phones only) This phone can be used to reset the password if you ever forget it. You can activate your netid at: SU's NetID Web page.
SU's NetID Web page can also be used to:
- change your password
- lookup your netid (you will need your SUID number)
- confirm your password (useful if the netid password doesn't appear to be working on one specific system)
- reset a forgotten password
- change your SMS cell phone number for recovery (US and Canada phones only)
