Who receives a NetID?

A NetID is assigned to all applicants, students, faculty, staff and associates at CSU-Pueblo and CSU Fort Collins.

Why do I need a NetID?

An active NetID is required for login to Microsoft 365 email and many other systems at CSU.

What is the format of a NetID?

CSU Fort Collins

If you joined CSU after July 24, 2023, your NetID follows the new standard format:

  • C followed by your 9-digit CSU ID
  • Automatically generated
  • Example: C899456789

If you were associated with CSU Fort Collins prior to July 24, 2023 and your account was active in 2022 or later, your eName/eID automatically became your NetID:

  • 2 to 8 lowercase characters starting with a letter
  • Created by the user
  • Example: xgarcia

If your account was not active in 2022 or 2023 but you reestablished your affiliation with CSU, your eName/eID would have been expired and you would be issued a new NetID in the C# format.

CSU-Pueblo

  • C followed by your 9-digit CSU ID
  • Example: C899456789
