What is an e-ID?
An e-ID (short for electronic identification or user name) and its corresponding password is your means of identifying yourself to the various electronic services available at SIUE. Obtaining your secure e-ID is a three step process that requires you to apply for the e-ID, choose a password, and finally, verify or reserve your e-ID within two weeks of activation. You will need your e-ID to access your SIUE email and apply for University Housing.
Accessing Your SIUE e-mail Account
Now that you have been admitted to SIUE, an SIUE e-mail account has been issued to you. Your e-ID user name and password are required to access your SIUE e-mail account.
Obtaining Your E-ID (user name) and Password
In order to obtain the e-ID user name, you will need your student identification number included in your admit letter. This is a 9-digit number and begins with 800.
The final screen displays your e-ID and password. Write this information down, memorize it, and keep it in a secure location. For security reasons, you will periodically be prompted to change your password. Your e-ID user name will be with you the entire time that you are a student at SIUE.
