UCInetID Issues

Learn about UCInetIDs — Who can sign in to EEE?

To sign in to EEE, you must have a UCInetID. UCInetIDs are assigned to faculty, staff, and students by the Office of Information Technology (OIT).

Applicants (cannot login to EEE)

UCI applicants receive a UCInetID that can be used to login to MyAdmissionsApplication@UCI. However, applicant UCInetIDs are not accepted on EEE. To login to EEE, you must be a UCI student, staff or faculty member. Visit MyAdmissions Application@UCI and Message Center for your admission status or visit the OIT — Applicant FAQ to learn more.

Newly admitted students (cannot login to EEE)

Newly admitted students cannot login to EEE until they become officially enrolled in classes. For instance, new students registered for classes in the Fall quarter can usually begin logging in ahead of time during the Summer, typically by July.

Newly enrolled students

Newly enrolled students can login to EEE within 4 hours of enrollment in Fall, Winter, or Spring classes and within 24 hours of enrollment in Summer classes.

Division of Continuing Education students

Division of Continuing Education students may need to contact the Division of Continuing Education to request UCInetIDs on as as-needed basis.

Generally, Division of Continuing Education students enrolled in regular undergraduate classes at UCI are given UCInetIDs, while Division of Continuing Education students taking classes that are offered only through the Division of Continuing Education are not.

Faculty and staff

Faculty and staff are assigned UCInetIDs as soon as Payroll begins sharing their information with OIT. Payroll begins sending OIT employee information after the employee is entered in the payroll system, and his or her employment start date has passed.

Learn about employee and student ID numbers

Employee ID Number

An employee ID number is assigned to each person employed by UCI. If you are an employee, you will need your employee ID number to activate your UCInetID, which allows you to access online services, such as EEE and UCI email.

Your employee ID number can be found on your staff ID card. You can also check with payroll personnel to get your employee ID number.

Student ID Number

A student ID number is assigned to each student at UCI. If you are a student, you will need your student ID number to activate your UCInetID, which allows you to access online services, such as EEE and UCI email.

Your student ID number can be found on your ID card. To obtain an ID card, visit The Hill (formerly the UCI Bookstore).

Your card serves as your source of identification on campus, and it is important to have it with you at all times. If you lose your card, get a replacement through The Hill.

Change your UCInetID and/or password

Change UCInetID

UCInetIDs may be changed free of charge under limited circumstances:

  • Legal name change
  • Data processing errors
  • Hardship cases
  • First-time requests from faculty, staff, and graduate students

In other cases, a UCInetID change may be subject to a small fee.

Change password

It is recommended that you periodically change your UCInetID password. Should you ever suspect that your password has been compromised, change it immediately.

Do not share your password with anyone. OIT and EEE staff will never ask you for your password.

  1. On the front page of EEE, press Secure Sign In.

Law Fall and Law Spring are semester views for Law School classes only.
Unless you are enrolled in or teaching a class that is offered through the UCI Law School, you will not have classes in Law Fall and Law Spring semesters.

For all other Fall and Spring classes, select the Fall or Spring Qtr (quarter) view instead.


Forgotten UCInetID password

Your UCInetID password is handled by the Office of Information Technology (OIT). Your password is encrypted and the OIT Help Desk staff cannot tell you what your password was.

If you activated your UCInetID after July 2003, you were asked to choose a security question and answer for identification. You can reset your password online yourself.

If you activated your UCInetID before July 2003 or if you cannot remember your security question and answer, please contact the OIT Help Desk at (949) 824-2222 for further assistance.

Error — IP mismatch

Mismatched IP address can cause error messages when signing in to EEE through WebAuth.

What is an IP address?

An IP address (Internet Protocol address) is a unique address that is given to all devices that utilize the internet.

When do IP mismatches occur?

IP mismatches occur when you log into WebAuth with one IP address, and later on, your IP address changes. For example, this can happen when switching from a wired to wireless connection at some locations with a laptop computer, or it can occur behind the scenes with certain internet providers.

What to do if you get an IP mismatch error:

  • Try to sign in again.
  • Clear the cache.
  • Clear the history.
  • Close and reopen your browser.
  • Try using Virtual Private Network (VPN) available through OIT (see below).

If none of the above suggestions fix the problem, please contact us.

Error — Bouncing back to EEE home after unsuccessful login

If you enter your UCInetID and password correctly and hit "Sign In," but are taken back to the EEE home page, this means you do not have cookies enabled on your browser.

Error — Bouncing back to login page

If the login page reloads and you appear to be logged in, but cannot access the EEE website while logged in, this may mean you are not yet eligible to EEE (eg: if you are a newly admitted student, not yet registered for classes).

Please review Learn about UCInetIDs — Who can sign in to EEE?; if you are an enrolled student, staff, or faculty member and believe you should be able to login to EEE, please contact us.

Error — Invalid Login

The "invalid login" error message means that your UCInetID and/or password were not entered correctly.

If you have forgotten your UCInetID or password, it will need to be reset.
