Set Up Your UVA Email Account

Email is the School's official means of communication with all SCPS faculty and students. You must establish a UVA email account before you can create a Canvas site for your class, before posting your class overview and syllabus to Canvas, and before you teach your first class. You must also establish a UVA email account prior to accessing the Student Information System (SIS) to retrieve class rosters, post final grades, and more.  

Setting up a UVA email account requires you to:

  • Obtain your UVA Computing ID
  • Obtain your System Generated UVA Password
  • Establish access to your UVA email

Note:  University faculty are required to sign into University systems using NetBadge. NetBadge is a digital “badge” allowing access to protected resources for faculty and students on the UVA network, such as the Student Information System (SIS) and Canvas . 

Whenever you are presented with a NetBadge Web Login, you will use your UVA Computing ID and System Generated UVA Password to gain access to these systems.

Please follow Steps 1-3 at 

If you are a returning faculty member and need assistance with your password, please contact the UVA Help Desk at 434-924-4357.

Still Need Assistance?

If you have trouble with any of these steps, please send an email to [email protected] and explain your situation. This desk is staffed Monday-Friday, 8am-5pm.
