MyID is Your Key

Whether you are a new student or employee, the University will assign a MyID that includes your initials and five random digits; for example, “abc1234”.  The MyID assigned to you is your key to accessing most of UGA’s online resources. Similarly to a mechanical key, you are advised to keep your MyID credentials safe and secure.  After your MyID is assigned,  you can create an alias to give it a nickname for memory-sake if you prefer.  However, all online applications at the School of Social Work require that you use the assigned MyID to access SSW systems.

Once the new MyID request is successfully completed and approved, you will receive an email from This will be sent to the email address the recipient provided during the MyID request process. Go to to change or reset passwords, manage a MyID profile.
