Activating Your EUID account*

EUID (Enterprise User Identification) accounts are used to login to most UNT systems, including the MyUNT online registration system. Every student and employee has an EUID account.

To activate your EUID account:

  • Click the "Activate Account" link on the left side of the page.
  • Enter the requested biographical information to confirm your identity.
  • If you are a student you will be prompted for a PIN (Personal Identification Number). This is a one-time use number that was mailed to you by the Admissions office. If you do not know your PIN, please contact the UNT Helpdesk at 940-565-2324. The Helpdesk will need to speak to the student to retrieve the account PIN.
  • You will be prompted to create a Secret Question and Answer. This question and answer combination is saved in your EUID account for additional security. The correct answer will need to be provided to reset the EUID password so please remember the answer you create. Also, do not create a question and answer combination that someone can easily guess.
  • You will then be prompted to create your password. The system will not accept passwords that do not meet the strength requirements (see for details). If your password is not accepted because it is weak, you will be given the option to run a password wizard that will create a list of modified passwords that you can choose from. Please remember that this password will expire after 120 days, at which point you will need to create a new password.

The activation process is complete! Please wait 10 minutes for your activation to be fully processed.
