NetID Activation and Financial Aid Info Verification

Activate your UVM NetID

If you have not already done so, you will need to activate your UVM Network ID. Going forward, this NetID can be used to check your financial aid award at https://go.uvm.edu/appstatus.

To active your NetID, follow the process outlined below.

  1. Visit https://go.uvm.edu/appstatus and sign in with your email address and password.
  2. Copy or note your Student ID number (also known as a 95 number). Your UVM NetID will be displayed to the right of your Student ID number. To activate your NetID account, click the “ACTIVATE YOUR NETID” link.
  3. Enter your Student ID# (95 number), then select your date of birth from the drop-down menu. Then click “Continue”.
  4. Create your NetID password, then click “Change password“.
  5. You should now have successfully set up your UVM NetID!

    Your NetID will appear in the orange colored box below. Make note of your NetID, as you will need it to log into all UVM services going forward.


    NEVER SHARE YOUR PASSWORD! Your password is used to verify financial aid, sign up for classes, log into email, and for many other services. Only you should have access to your account.

  3. Once logged in, view your FINANCIAL AID CHECKLIST” and complete all tasks that are listed.
