Getting a MyUCSC Account

MyUCSC users log in to MyUCSC using their CruzID and CruzID Gold password.  CruzID Manager is an application that is used to claim a CruzID account and provides authentication and password services for many systems on campus including MyUCSC, eCommons, Campus Housing, University Dining and SlugMail.

Applicant accounts are created automatically during the admissions process.  For information on claiming your CruzID account click here.

Student accounts are created automatically during the admission process. If you are having difficulty signing into MyUCSC, please contact the ITS Support Center at help@ucsc.edu or 459-HELP (4357).

Faculty accounts are created automatically when the faculty member has been set up as a UCSC employee and has been added as an instructor of record by their academic department.  IT Support contacts faculty directly when their account is ready.  If you are having difficulty signing into MyUCSC, please contact the ITS Support Center at help@ucsc.edu or 459-HELP (4357).

Staff follow a three-step process to obtain a MyUCSC or an AIS account:

  1. Fill out and submit account forms to ITS.

  2. Sign up for mandatory Intro to AIS training.

  3. Read our Policy on Privacy of Student Records and take the FERPA Quiz.

IT Support notifies staff when the appropriate access has been approved and assigned.

Alumni can continue to access their MyUCSC portal using their student CruzID account. If you do not have a CruzID account or you are having difficulty signing into MyUCSC, please contact the ITS Support Center at help@ucsc.edu or 459-HELP (4357).
