Electronic Identity (eID)
All students enrolled in credit courses at Colorado State University are required to have an Electronic Identity (eID) which provides access to electronic resources such as RAMweb and Canvas. Your eID consists of a login name (eName) and password (ePassword) of your choice.
Your eID also requires the use of an email address. As your eID email address will be used by the University for official communication, please choose an email address you plan to check regularly.
Visit http://eid.colostate.edu/ to create your eID and update or retrieve a forgotten password. Newly created accounts are activated immediately though during heavy registration periods, activation may take several hours.
Forgot your password? First, visit http://eid.colostate.edu. Click on "Change Password" and then click on "I forgot my ePassword." Go through the steps presented to change your password.
An email address is required to create and maintain your eID. Please ensure you use (or forward to) an email address that you check regularly.
- You may enter a personal email address, or
- You may obtain a Lamar (eName@lamar.colostate.edu) account during the creation of your eID, or
- You may obtain a Google Apps for CSU (eName@rams.colostate.edu) account during the creation of your eID. To forward this email address to a different account, review these instructions.
