New User Orientation


To Activate Your NetID and UIC Email Address

New students wishing to obtain ACCC services, such as Email, Blackboard, UICalendar, etc., should begin with activating your UIC Netid and password. During the activation of your NetID and UIC email address you will be asked to set a password, which will allow you access to your email and other application such as blackboard.

We strongly recommend everyone to use MAILSERV as your email account since the email-only server contains a much larger email quota than ICARUS or TIGGER.

If you already have obtained an ACCC password and email account, you can create an additional ACCC account or service.
