How do I activate my U-Mail account?

U-Mail accounts are eligible for activation about a week after the Registrar's Office has processed your Statement of Intent to Register. UCSB Extension Open University students are eligible to activate their accounts only after we've receive registration information from the Extension offices.

Once you're eligible, you can activate your account at our Account Activation site. To activate your account you'll need an UCSBnetID, which you can get from UCSB Identity Services.

Your email address is your UCSBNetID followed by @umail.ucsb.edu and the password is the same as the one for your UCSBNetID.

If you run into any trouble activating your account click the [help] button for further instructions.
