All faculty, staff, students, and guests are assigned a Rutgers unique identifier known as a NetID, comprised of initials and a unique number (e.g. jqs23). In order to access many of the electronic services available to you at Rutgers, you need to activate your Rutgers NetID. Your assigned NetID will appear on the activation screen. The NetID will enable you to open an email and computer account, view course materials and your grades online, and access other services. We encourage you to create a Rutgers email address so your email address appears on an enrollment roster and in the online directory.
