This document discusses how to get a NetID and how to retrieve a forgotten UIN (University Identification Number).

How Do I Get a NetID?

If you can log in to Texas A&M Gmail, then you already have a NetID. Your log in to Texas A&M Gmail is your NetID.

If you have never logged in to Texas A&M Gmail, you may need to activate your NetID by visiting the "Aggie Computing Gateway." Click Activate NetID under "NetID Account Management."

Note: To activate your NetID, you will need to have your UIN ready.

How Do I Retrieve My UIN?

UINs cannot be given over the phone to anyone. If you need to find out your UIN, follow the instructions below:

For Applicants:

Contact the Office of the Registrar during the business day at 979.845.1060. After confirming your identity, arrangements to receive your UIN via e-mail or by mail can be made.

Graduates can e-mail for information.

For Current Students:

You can determine your UIN by logging into Howdy. Your UIN will be at the top of the screen next to your name.

For Former Students:

Contact the Office of the Registrar during the business day at 979.845.1003. Arrangements to fax a personal information request can be made.

For Staff:

Contact departmental Human Resources or Payroll personnel.
