Employee NetIDs for Teaching Assistants and/or other Student Employees

About the Employee NetID

An Employee NetID is issued to students who are hired as Teaching Assistants:

  • The Employee NetID should be used when performing employee functions
  • The Employee NetID email address becomes the student's primary email account in SOLUS: all student and employee notices will be sent to the Employee email account
  • Student employees can set up an Exchange email account for use with their employee NetID
  • Students will continue to log into all student resources including SOLUS, Office 365, Moodle courses, etc. using their student NetID
  • Course Instructors will be able to use the Employee NetID to add Teaching Assistants to their Moodle course(s) without submitting an online request

Important information about student-employee email accounts

It is very important to keep your employee identity separate and distinct from your student identity. If you have already forwarded your employee email account to your student account, please remove the forwarding and ensure that any work-related email is transferred to your employee email account.

For further details, please read the Fact Sheet on the University Secretariat and Legal Counsel site. For information on handling confidential university documents, refer to the Electronic Information Security Policy Framework.
