Establish or Capture NetID
You must have an NetID and password to use the Faculty Self-Service system. Please read the instructions for creating an NetID and password.
- You are required to have an activated UIC NetID and password.
- To activate your UIC NetID you need the following:
- University Identification Number (UIN): Listed on your i-card
- Social Security Number
- Date of Birth
- Complete the NetID Activation step. Successful netid activation results in the following: a NetID, a common password (used for many ACCC services), password recovery mechanisms (used to reset an expired or forgotten password) and an opportunity to either create a UIC email account or modify UIC email routing to forward mail to a non-UIC account.
If NetID Activation fails, please follow instructions and seek in-person assistance at an Academic Computing and Communications Center (ACCC) consulting site. You will not be able to continue with Step 4 until you've established a NetID and password.
