Instructions to activate your Illinois NetID


Once your NetMath course enrollment is processed, you will need to activate your NetID.

The NetID will act as your username for accessing various University resources, including your Illinois email (example: NetID@illinois.edu). Shortly after confirming your intent to enroll in a NetMath course you will receive an email with your Activation Code and University Identification Number (UIN).

To claim your NetID, visit https://netidclaim.illinois.edu/ and enter your UIN and Activation Code. Follow the remaining instructions on the page. During this process, you will set up your University (@illinois.edu) email address.

The process to access your email will depend on whether you are enrolled as a Graduate or Undergraduate student. Please follow the steps on the page to complete the process. If you have questions, contact netmath@illinois.edu.
