Account Information

UTD-ID Number

Example: 2012345678

Your UTD-ID is the number on your Comet Card and it would have been issued to you by mail when your application to UTD was processed. It is a ten digit number that acts as the unique identifier for your account (e.g.1234567890; older Comet Cards may have 8 digits*).

Your UTD-ID is used for business purposes on-campus to protect the privacy of your Social Security Number. Don’t disclose your UTD-ID to off-campus individuals. The Help Desk will only ever request the last five digits for identification purposes.

Use your UTD-ID and Date of Birth to pick up your NetID and create a password at netid.utdallas.edu.

Note: If your UTD-ID is 8 digits, insert a “20” before the number to access systems such as NetIDplus that require a 10-digit UTD-ID.

NetID

Your NetID is a Network account, used to access campus computing resources. It usually begins with your initials followed by numbers (e.g., abc123456). Your NetID is associated with a network password (update your password at https://netid.utdallas.edu/) . Keep your password secret.

Use your NetID and password to access the UT Dallas network, check your @utdallas.edu email, and UTD systems including:

For further information about the NetID and how to guides such as how to reset the password, please refer to the NetID How To page.

Comet Card

The Comet Card is the official identification card for all UT Dallas students, faculty, and staff. The card allows the use of campus facilities and services and offers optional campus accounts for on-campus purchases and payments.

Your Comet Card is issued upon your initial association with UT Dallas and must be retained throughout your affiliation with the University, even though you may not attend consecutive semesters. The card is automatically activated, or deactivated, based on your current status with the University.

For more information, please visit: http://www.utdallas.edu/cometcenter/cometcard/

Service Levels

A student’s account service level is automatically determined based on the activity of the student’s account. New applicants will be set to Webapps Only, enabling them to login to their Galaxy account to update their information, check admission status, and access to other resources such as the UTD wireless network. After a student is enrolled, their account moves to Standard at the beginning of a semester, giving them full access to UTD resources for the duration of the semester. If a student is not actively enrolled, their account will age, restricting usage of campus resources.
