Throughout your time as a Blue Hen, important UD information will be communicated to you via your student email account. UD's online billing system operates exclusively through your UD email account – we no longer send paper bills. Faculty use email extensively to communicate with their classes, too, so all new students are required to set up their student account before classes begin in the fall.
Your account will also give you access to UDSIS, the University's online student records system, which is where you register for classes, check your grades, and plan for degree completion. To set up your account, wait 24 hours after you have registered for classes during New Student Orientation, and then get started. Here's how:
a. Log on to the admitted-student site at www.udel.edu/mybluehenhome and follow instructions to set up your personal identification number (PIN).
b. Learn about UD's policies on responsible computing:
c. The next step is to choose your UD ID (i.e., your login, which is usually a variation on your first initial and your full last name) and your password. For this step, you will need the PIN that you set up in Step 1, as well as your 9-digit UD ID number, which you can get from My Blue Hen Home. With these two numbers at hand, go to www.udel.edu/network and login using your UD ID and PIN; then follow the prompts to activate your account. At the end of this procedure, the system will confirm acceptance of your login and password.
d. Your account is now active. Within a few minutes, you will have access to:
f. You should always use your UD email account to send email to your advisor, your professors, and others at UD. Why? That's how we know you are you, and we'll be able to discuss your questions, knowing your student record. If you use a personal email account, such as Gmail, Yahoo Mail, etc., we recommend that you set the other account to forward to your UD email account. Your Google Apps at UD account also offers you access to Google applications such as Drive (which includes Google Docs), Calendar, Sites, and Hangouts.
