Your SAIC email account is the key to accessing Canvas and other student resources. Your instructor will communicate with you through Canvas and your SAIC.edu email address. Check it regularly during the course.
To activate your SAIC email account, you will need to:
- Locate your SAIC ID number in your Registration Confirmation email. If you have an SAIC student ID card you will also find it there.
- Go to password.artic.edu
- Select Activate Account
- Enter your 7-digit SAIC ID number
- Enter your Last Name
- Enter your Birthdate using this exact date format: DD-MMM (e.g., 22-FEB)
- Select Activate
Your username is automatically assigned but you will create your own password, which must be alphanumeric and at least six characters. Record your account information for future reference.
Visit gmail.artic.edu to login to your SAIC email with the username and password from above.
