A UCR NetID is your unique identifier, and all UCR University Extension students are required to have one.
Online students need a UCR NetID to access University Extension's course delivery system, eLearn (Canvas).
Concurrent students need a UCR NetID to access the UCR's course delivery system, iLearn (Blackboard).
Students taking courses in the University Extension Center need a UCR NetID to access WiFi.
Your UCR NetID also allows you to use the UCR libraries.
How do I get a UCR NetID?
Within two hours of registering for a class, following receipt of your Enrollment Confirmation, you should receive a second automated email with a Temporary ID, Temporary Password, links and instructions to set up your UCR NetID.
I can't find the UCR NetID setup email. What should I do?
Do I have to set up my UCR NetID before my class begins?
Yes. Your UCR NetID requires a 3-hour activation period before you can access NetID and WiFi; a 4-hour activation period before you can access eLearn (Moodle); and a 24-hour activation period before you can access iLearn (Blackboard). You should set up your UCR NetID a few days prior to your first class meeting.
I completed the setup, but I forgot to write down my UCR NetID. What should I do?
Online technical support is available Monday-Friday, 8 a.m. - 5 p.m., and Saturday, 10 a.m. - 12 p.m.
Self-service kiosks are available in the computer labs in Sproul Hall 2225, Olmsted Hall 1316, Watkins Hall 2111 and the Bear Help Desk in the HUB to assist with many account-related functions, including UCR Net ID lookups and password resets.
I know my UCR NetID and password, but I receive an error message when I enter my credentials on the CAS login screen. What is wrong?
If you haven't used your NetID for a few months, and you receive an error message when you try to login to Moodle, you may need to reactivate your account by refreshing your password.
If you try and login before the posted course opening date, you will receive an error message.
If you are a former or present UCR student and have just completed LINKING your current UCR NetID to your new student record in UCR Extension, you will need to allow 3 hours for your UCR NetID accounts to be merged.
Once the activation period passes, you will have access to Moodle courses 7 days prior to the posted start date, and iLearn (Blackboard) classes 24 hours after your UCR NetID accounts have been merged.
