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
The most common UIC login systems and which type of username should be used are described below:
  • For UIC-specific systems including Gmail, Blackboard and my.uic.edu that use this login screen, you will just use your NetID as your username
example U I C login page
  • System applications such as apps.uillinois.edu, TEM, etc. with the below log in screen will only use your NetID as well.
example university of illinois log in screen
  • For Microsoft applications, including UIC Exchange, you will use your full NetID@uic.edu email address to log in.  If you try to log in with only your NetID, you will be prompted to enter your full email address
example microsoft app U I C login
