Registering for an eID

Tags eID

 Objective

Register for an eID to get access to K-State systems.

Notes:

  • Your eID is your K-State user name and is used to access applications, enroll in classes, accept financial aid, access K-State e-mail, view pay checks, and more.
  • You must be 13 or older to register.
  • Undergraduate students applying to the university are required to have an eID to submit an application.
  • If you attended as a student or were employed with K-State after Fall 2002, you should already have an eID and you should not register for another one. Contact the IT Service Desk to reactivate your old eID and associate it with your new student status at K-State.

 Procedure

  1. Go to the eProfile page and then click Register now!


     
  2. Under Personal Information, enter the required information indicated by a purple asterisk (*).
  3. Under Verification, if you are a student, enter your Wildcat ID (WID). If you are an employee, enter your Social Security Number (SSN). If you are a parent or non-related to K-State, leave this blank.

    Note: Students registering for an eID as part of the undergraduate application process do not have to enter a WID or SSN.
     
  4. Click Continue.
  5. Do one of the following:
     
    • If your WID or SSN matches your K-State records, then choose either your eID. You may also be prompted to contact the IT Service Desk if you already have an eID. DO NOT not register for another eID if you have an eID or had one previously. If you are registering for a group eID, you should continue with the eID registration process and do not need to contact the IT Service Desk.
       
    • If you did not enter WID or SSN or if the WID or SSN you entered does not match K-State records, you will be prompted to provide additional information about yourself.

      Note for new employees: If your WID or SSN does not match K-State records because your employment paperwork is not fully processed and you need access to K-State email or other university resources, finish registering for an eID and then contact your department's personnel specialist to be granted preliminary employee privileges.
       
  6. On the Choose your eID page, select one of the generated eIDs or select Custom choice and type your own eID.
  7. Click Continue.
  8. On the Choose your password page, enter your eID password in the New password and Confirm password boxes.

    Note: To ensure your password meets K-State security standards, see the eID password FAQs page. You can also have your eProfile generate a password for you.
     
  9. Review your information. If it is correct, click Register my eID. If it is incorrect, click Cancel and start over.
