Current students, faculty, and staff are automatically eligible for a UCSBnetID — you may activate yours using the Identity Manager.
If you don't fall into one of these categories, you'll need to have a University department sponsor you as an affiliate. Have your host department visit our information on Affiliate UCSBnetIDs.
Students: To log in, use your full legal name, your PERM number, your date of birth in month/date/year (mm/dd/yyyy) format, and the last four digits of your social security number. If you do not have a social security number, use '0000'.
Activating your UCSBnetID:
- Go to: https://im.ucsb.edu/idm/manage
- Select "A New or Current Student with a Perm Number." Enter your family/surname under "Last Name." Your perm number should be 7 digits and NOT include a hyphen/dash. Your date of birth should be entered in the following format: MM/DD/YYYY. If you do not have a Social Security Number use 0000.
- NOTE: UCSB Extension or Open University students choose the "A Student enrolled through UCSB Extension / Open University" radio button. They enter their family/surname under "Last Name." Their date of birth should in the MM/DD/YYYY format. And Extension Student ID which is not a perm number.
