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:
Your NetID and associated password are the only credentials needed to access most University and campus networking and computing services. Services such as the my.UIC portal, Blackboard, email, campus computer labs, printers and more.
Passwords are managed centrally via the IAM Password Management service.
Starting October 17th, UIC faculty, staff, and students will be asked to set-up new password recovery options at the time of the next password change for their UIC NetID. Once each user has completed this step, their passwords for Campus NetIDs and Enterprise IDs will be the same. For more information about the One ID & Password (OIDPW) project please see http://web.uillinois.edu/IAM.
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.
A NetID and an EnterpriseID are similar and for most people their NetID (for example: adabyron) is the same as their EnterpriseID (adabyron). However, the two passwords associated with them are independent. Some services accept authentication using either a NetID or an EnterpriseID.
Your EnterpriseID and Enterprise password are used to access Enterprise applications such as Web for Student, Web for Faculty, Banner, etc. In almost all cases, your EnterpriseID will be the same as your UIC NetID.
Visit the IAM Password Management page at identity.uillinois.edu to set up or modify your password recovery options. The contact information you provide will allow self management of your password if it becomes unusable (expired, forgotten, or locked) and will only be used for password changes, computer account security events including concerns or alerts involving your high risk data, or as authorized by law.
Listserv passwords are independent of any other password. A listserv password is associated with a specific email address. To set a new listserv password click on the Change Password button on any listserv login page:
When you leave UIC, your accounts are flagged to be deleted after a specified grace period, about which you should have received an email notification. Account deletion notices and password expiration notices are managed separately as the events are not intrinsically related. If you have received notifications about both, you will lose account access by whichever happens first. If your password expires before your accounts are deleted and you need to continue accessing your accounts until the end of the grace period, you will need to reset your password.
Implementation of password syncing for your UIC NetID and Enterprise ID is planned for Fall 2016, when UIC goes live with the "One ID and Password" phase of the IAM Project. Until then, the password for your UIC NetID, also known as the ACCC "common" password, will continue to be managed separately from your Enterprise password. After UIC goes live with "One ID and Password", subsequent password changes will be synced from your UIC NetID to your Enterprise ID (and vice versa), as well as to any other UI campus at which you have been assigned a NetID.
If you remember your expired password, you can still use it to log in at password.uic.edu to create a new password (as long as your accounts have not been deleted). Options for assistance with a forgotten password are explained at accc.uic.edu/answer/how-do-i-change-my-password. If you have been away long enough for your accounts to be deleted, you will need to make sure you have a current valid affiliation, and then go through NetID activation as a new user in order to establish a new password and accounts.
An ACCC help desk agent can check the password expiration date for your NetID to verify that it is time for you to change your password. You may contact the ACCC help desk at (312) 413-0003 or via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Yes, an expired password can be changed and the new password will then last for one year. If you have previously set up password recovery options, you may change your password using the "Forgot password?" link at password.uic.edu. Additional options for assistance with a forgotten password are explained at accc.uic.edu/answer/how-do-i-change-my-password.
You can find a list of the basic password rules at password.uic.edu, before and after you log in to change your password. You can also find some tips to help you think of a good password at accc.uic.edu/answer/how-do-i-change-my-password.
It is always safer not to click on links in email. To make sure that you are using the correct website whenever you change the password for your UIC NetID, type 'password.uic.edu' in your web browser's address bar.
