Applicant UCInetID FAQ
A UCInetID is your name based user-name at UC Irvine. It consists of a 3-8 letter combination of your first and last name. For example, Peter Anteater’s UCInetID would be panteat. A UCInetID is not a Student ID Number or an Application ID which consists of all numbers. To Login, your UCInetID needs to be activated.
As an applicant, you can activate your UCInetID at the following link: https://activate.uci.edu
- Your Student ID Number from UC Irvine which is 8 digits in length
- Your birth date
- The last four digits of your social security number
- Go to the MyAdmission page
- The second heading on the page states “Forgot your UCI student ID Number?”
- In order to recover your ID, you will need your Application ID number which was used to apply to every UC and is 7 digits in length.
- Enter your Application ID number in the box and click on “Send ID”.
- A message will be sent to the email account you provided when applying. (This will likely be your personal email account, such as Yahoo or Gmail, that you provided when you applied to UC).
You will need to contact the UC Application Processing Service by phone.
- If you are inside the U.S. call (800) 207-1710
- If you are outside the U.S. call (310) 513-2715

- As an applicant your reset answer can be sent to the email address you provided when applying.

Undergraduate applicant access to UCI websites is restricted during the admission process. Initially, applicants can only login to just 2 UCI websites:
Applicants are restricted to these two UCI websites until they’ve submitted the SIR (Statement of Intent to Register), which they fill out after they’ve been accepted by the university (the SIR can be accessed through the MyAdmissions portal above). 24 hours after they submit the SIR, they can then login to 2 other sites:
- The My.Housing Gateway (the process is explained on the main UCI Housing website)
- Zotaccount (can be used by applicants to pay housing fees as well; however, the my.housing website above is preferred)
After the 1st week of May, all incoming applicants who have completed their SIR’s will be converted to ‘Student’ status, and at that point they will be able to login to most other UCI websites such as:
The MyAdmission website uses a non-standard web port which can cause issues on certain networks. Please contact your local network support to see if they can enable access or try again from a less restricted network (home).
The information on this page is geared for Undergraduate Applicants. Graduate Applicants should contact their respective Admissions Office for help with checking their admissions status as some of the tools will not work and are not relevant for Graduate Applicants.
