Your ARTIC account is the key to accessing Canvas and other student resources. You will also use your ARTIC account username and password to login to your SAIC.edu email address. Your instructor will communicate with you through Canvas and your SAIC.edu email address. Make sure to regularly check your SAIC.edu email address during the course.
To activate your ARTIC account, you will need to:
- Locate your SAIC ID number in the email “APSI at SAIC - Next Steps.” If you have an SAIC student ID card (ARTICard) you will also find it there.
- Go to password.artic.edu
- Select Activate Account
- On the Verification screen, enter the words displayed and select Verify
- Enter your 7-digit SAIC ID number
- Enter your Last Name
- Enter your Birthdate using this exact date format: DD-MMM (two-digit day, dash, and all caps three-digit month, for example: 22-FEB)
- Select Activate
Your login is automatically assigned but you will create your own password. Passwords must be alphanumeric and at least six characters. Be sure to record your account information for future reference.
Read all instructions. You must complete the entire process or your account will not be activated.
