New MyID process

The process for requesting a MyID for new UGA employees has changed. The change does not affect MyIDs for current faculty and staff.

The new process will assign MyIDs that include the new employee’s initials and five random digits (example: gwb12345).

As part of the new process, the form to request a MyID has changed and now requires authentication through UGA’s Central Authentication Service.

New employees and those without MyIDs are no longer able to request a MyID for themselves. Instead they should contact their manager or HR representative to have that person complete the MyID request form at

Once the MyID request has been successfully completed, the new employee will be informed by an email from The email will be sent to the email address provided during the MyID request process.
