Welcome to your new electronic ID:  NetID!

NetID introduction video

Your CSU-Pueblo login ID is being replaced by a CSU-System electronic ID called a “NetID.”   The August 10th rollout of NetID has been postponed.   We will be announcing a future date here as to when you will start using this new login to access your computer, email and most other systems we use.   It is still important for you to go in and claim your NetID.

This page explains the how, why and what of your new NetID.

For existing employees to obtain their NetID, follow the instructions on the NetID Introduction Document

Why is this happening?

Your old familiar login IDs are based on our legacy AIS system, which is being replaced by the Banner system.   Banner provides a unique identifier for every member of our campus including all students, faculty, staff and anyone who has a record in the system and needs access to our computer network.  

This new electronic identity is also being adopted by our System partners in Fort Collins.  Using the latest technology, we are designing this NetID together in order to provide opportunities for our campuses to collaborate closer, share resources and provide a better student experience across the CSU System.

What will our new NetIDs look like?

Your login ID will no longer look like firstname.lastname (example:  john.doe ).    This old type of login ID is also less secure since it is easy for a hacker to guess.  Instead, your new ID will be a unique number assigned to you that will never change.  It will start with a “C” followed by 9 digits, like the following example:





 Once assigned, you’ll need to memorize it.  This will be your permanent login ID as a member of the CSU community and will also replace your PID as the unique identifier to track all of your CSU-Pueblo records.

Goodbye to PID?   Really?

Yes.  Our legacy Administrative Information System (AIS) created PIDs as the unique identifier for everyone's records.   But since AIS is being replaced by Banner as the source of electronic ID, PID numbers are going away too.  But the new NetID will not only replace PID as your unique ID for CSU Pueblo, it will also be your unique ID for the entire CSU System.  So login credentials for students, faculty and staff will work on systems at both institutions (as long as permissions have been granted).

Designed with collaboration in mind

 Changing our electronic ID is a big deal.  This is a rare occurrence for any organization.   But we recognized the unique opportunity to work together with our partner campus in Fort Collins to devise a brand new identity schema that both campuses will adopt together.

 This represents a major milestone in our evolution and partnership as equal CSU System members and will open many possibilities for shared resources and future collaboration.  We are working together to extend our ‘Security Fabric’ of electronic identity and access systems beyond our campus borders and encompass all of CSU System institutions (CSU Global will have the option to utilize this same Security Fabric in the future as the need develops).

How to get your NetID

Your NetID is being generated by the Banner system and will be made available for Employees to obtain from inside the CSU-Pueblo Employee Portal. Students will obtain their NetIDs online through PAWS.  This must be done before August 7th.  Starting August 10th, all employees and students will use their new NetID login to access computer resources.  Once you login to Employee Portal, click on the Account icon.   In this Account section, there will be a "CSU System" section that shows your NetID with a blue button next to it that says "Activate."     This will step you through the activation process that will require you to receive a verification email with final instructions on setting up your password and secondary recovery email address.   Here is an instruction/intro document with screen shots.   Again, the NetID will be required to use computer resources starting August 10th, 2020.
