How are NetIDs Assigned?
A University NetID end Employee ID# are automatically assigned to a new employee within 24 hours after the hire information is entered into FASIS. The hire paperwork may be submitted up to 90 days before the employee's start date, providing immediate and early access to University email and other NetID-based systems. For example, a Faculty member starting September 1st may begin using email and setting up the course in Blackboard as early as June 1st. Paperwork is completed as follows:
How does the employee receive the NetID?
Once the NetID is generated, an email is sent to the hiring department's NetID Coordinator. This email contains the NetID and activation instructions; the NetID Coordinator is responsible for forwarding the information to the new employee.
How do I know that a NetID has been created?
If a NetID has been created, you can find it on the employee's Personal Data page in FASIS Admin (Wordforce Administation > Personal Information > Personal Data). Click the "Contact Information" tab; the NetID and email will be listed in the "Email Addresses" box. If this box is blank, the NetID has not yet been assigned.
How can I change the NetID Coordinator?
By default, the Department Manager is assigned as the NetID Coordinator for all new hires within that department. However, any FASIS Administration user may modify the NetID Coordinator for their department using the NetID Coordinator page in FASIS.
