ITS Computing Accounts
Students: Activate Your UVa Email Account
Note for New Students: You must wait 72 hours after accepting your offer of admission and paying your admission deposit (if required) before you may start this process!
Get Started Now: The UVa Email Activation Process
There are 2 steps in the activation process:
- Read through the Responsible Computing Handbook. You may want to watch the brief Responsible Computing Video, “ When I go to UVa...” to familiarize yourself with the fundamentals.
- Complete the Responsible Computing Tutorial with a score of 100% (there are no trick questions),
and agree to abide by UVa’s computing policies.
- For newly admitted undergraduate & graduate students: Take your Tutorial now (log in through NetBadge using the Temporary password you use for SIS; you’ll get a Permanent password later).
- For all other new students: Take this version of the Tutorial now if you did not receive a password for NetBadge during the admissions process.
You may then activate your new UVa Gmail account! View more info about UVa student email.
