Q. How do I activate my UTAD account?

1. To activate your account use your Internet browser to go to:

2. Enter your UT student ID number. As you type in this number, you will only see dots displayed, this is so no one can read your information.

3. Enter your birthdate.

4. If a message is displayed saying there is an error, the student ID or birthdate do not match what is stored in the Active Directory then click the back arrow button in the upper left of your browser's menu bar. Try retyping whichever field had the error. If it happens again contact the Service Request Line at (419) 530-2400 or extension 2400 if on campus.
