NetID Activation

Associated Roles:
  • Students
  • Faculty / Staff

Your NetID is automatically generated once you become affiliated with the University, but must be activated before use.

To activate your NetID, please go to the Identity Portal, select Activate my NetID, and follow the instructions. To begin the process, you will need to know one of the following pieces of information.

  • Your NSHE ID Number, which is received during the application acceptance and class registration process.
  • Your Employee ID Number. (Which can be found in Workday)
    • In order for the system to properly process your Employee ID number, it must be entered with the formatting e000123456, this identifies you as an employee rather than a student.

During the activation process, you will be asked to create a password. You will use this password anytime you use your NetID username.

Once the activation process is completed, you will be given your NetID username. Once you receive your NetID username, you will be able to use it immediately on most University systems.

Some University Tools, such as WebCampus, may experience a short delay before you are able to log in. If you are unable to log in 24 hours after activation, please contact theĀ OIT Support Center.
