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 Email Account
Now that you have been admitted to SIUE, an SIUE email account has been issued to you. Your e-ID user name and password are required to access your SIUE email 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.
