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.
