What is the difference between my NetID and UIC email address?


Your UIC email address is not the same thing as your NetID. Your UIC NetID does not contain @uic.edu, while your email address will contain both your NetID and @uic.edu to form your NetID@uic.edu email.

If you do not know your NetID, it can be recovered here: https://identity.uillinois.edu/iamFrontEnd/iam/forgotID
