To access many authenticated university services and create accounts, new students, faculty and staff must first activate their UIC netID. The following information is required to complete the activation:

UIC netID is an identifier used to access many university services. Identity and Access Management includes authentication, provisioning of services and consultation for obtaining UIC netIDs, establishing non-personal email addresses for University business, netID changes, and troubleshooting related to university identities. 

ACCC email addresses, accounts, and services are available to current UIC students, staff, and faculty. When class registration or employment at UIC ceases, access to uic.edu email addresses and ACCC email accounts and computing resources is extended for a grace period to allow time for transition to a new email provider. Unfortunately, we cannot offer unlimited periods of account access or email forwarding. 

Everyone at UIC has an email address in the form netID@uic.edu, where netID is that person's UIC netID. This is an email forwarding address, not an actual email account. In order to be used, netID@uic.edu must forward to an actual email account, which can be a UIC email account or an existing external account. In many cases, when you create an ACCC email account, you will be given the option to have your netID@uic.edu email sent to your new account.

A University Identification Number (UIN) is a unique combination of nine numbers that the University uses to permanently identify people in its computer system and for recordkeeping purposes. To retrieve your UIN, please visit the i-card website.

Service: GoogleApps

Everyone at UIC has a UIC email address of the form: netID@uic.edu. For Ada Byron, whose student netID is abyron1, this is: abyron1@uic.eduThis is an important email address, because all official UIC email will be sent to it. But it is just an email address; there isn't an email account to go with it. At some point or other, you will have to select an actual email account to receive and manage your netID@uic.edu email.

Will your netID@uic.edu email go to your Google Apps at UIC account?

Everyone at UIC needs to have a UIC netID and an ACCC common password.  It allows you:

Please contact accounts@uic.edu regarding access to Blackboard for guest affiliates who do not have UIC netIDs. Once a netID is generated they can then be added to your Blackboard Learn course.

A UIC network ID, or netID, is a public identifier used for authentication to many services provided by the ACCC. The netID is not a password and it is not an account itself but it is required in order to access ACCC services.

When a student does not register for a Spring or Fall term, their UIC netID is marked for expiration and enters a grace period. The grace period lasts throughout the term during which the student did not register for classes, and ends sometime in the middle of the next term. For example, if a student registered for Spring 2011, but did not register for Fall 2011, their netID will remain in grace period throughout Fall and into Spring 2012.

In order to retain your access to UIC computing resources, students must be registered for classes.

Your UIC netID is your identity, in many different ways — email address, login credentials, Banner, Bluestem, Listserv lists, lists of netIDs allowed to access various files, personal URL, and more. Changing your netID is a complex, labor-intensive and time-consuming process, and despite ACCC's best efforts, can result in some service disruption. You wouldn't believe all the different machines, accounts, and files, that can contain a netID and need to be changed about the same time.

Please refer to the Office of Business and Financial Services website for instructions on retrieving your W-2 if your netID is inactive. The instructions are listed under the heading Electronic Form W-2/1042 for Terminated/Retired Employees.

The ACCC cannot create netIDs nor issue student affiliations for the express purpose of allowing an auditing student access to ACCC services.
