Guest NetID

If you are NOT a Rutgers student, you will need to obtain a guest NetID. This is a very simple process and you need to do it as soon as possible. Please follow the steps outlined below:

  • Go to
  • Type in all required personal information: (Be sure everything is typed in accurately)
  • It will require your social security number, even though that field is not marked as required.  If you elect not to submit it then it will create a pseudo number and this will require at least 2-3 more extra steps later and should be avoided.

I am your sponsor, and this is the required information you should type in for me:

  • Campus: RBHS
  • Do you know your sponsor’s email: yes
  • Sponsor’s email address:

The next fields should auto-fill, but if not:

  • Sponsor’s first name: Linda
  • Sponsor’s last name: Everett
  • Department: Pharm-Pharmacology&Toxicology — [RBHS]
  • Start date: [use current date]
  • End date: [use default end date]

In the notes section state the following:  Need access for Scarlet Mail, RU Wireless and Canvas.

I will then get an email that you have supplied the proper information and that it requires my approval.  Once I approve, you will receive an email from our Rutgers Information Technology Department and they will provide you with your Net ID information.  For example, if your name is John Smith, it may look like:  JS1234. As soon as you get your Rutgers Net ID, please:

  • Activate it and create your own password.
  • Send an email to indicating your new Net ID.  (Again, example “JS1234”)

You must remember your Net ID and your password while you are working here.

Guest ID Card

In order to get a Rutgers ID card go to and follow the instructions to submit an appropriate photo. Your Net ID & password must be activated for this to be completed.
