How Do I Get A NetID?
If you can log in to Texas A&M Email (Neo), then you already have a NetID. Your log in to Texas A&M Email (Neo) is your NetID.
If you have never logged in to Texas A&M Email (Neo), you may need to activate your NetID by visiting the Aggie Computing Gateway. Click the Activate NetID link under NetID Account Management. To activate your NetID, you will need to have your UIN ready.
If you have difficulty logging in to Texas A&M Email (Neo) or activating your NetID, you can contact Help Desk Central anytime by calling 979.845.8300 or sending email to email@example.com. Help Desk Central can help you determine if you qualify to activate a NetID or give you your NetID if it has already been activated.
