START HERE: ORIENTATION STEPS

Welcome to Systems Engineering at CSU!

Starting an advanced degree program can be both exciting and a bit intimidating. To help our students with a smooth transition into the department and CSU, we have created a virtual orientation.

Please complete the orientation before the semester begins, and let us know if you have any questions!

Part 1: Accepting Admission

Toggle Content

After you have received official notice of admission from the Graduate School, your official Admission Letter can be accessed through your admissions application. Review this letter and submit any documentation that you are asked to provide. You may be restricted from course registration without this documentation.

If you wish to defer your admission to a later term, contact your Graduate Student Advisor, Ingrid Bridge.

Confirm your decision to attend through your admissions application so we know you will be attending!  

CSU eID

Your CSU eID (electronic identification) grants access to CSU systems.

You must know your CSU ID to create your eID. Your CSU ID was e-mailed to you shortly after your application was submitted. 

Your email account with CSU

When you create your eID, you will also create your university email account. All communications from CSU will be sent to this address.

To access your account, sign in to Office 365 using your ename@colostate.edu and eID password.

Your email address is your first name plus your last name @colostate.edu (e.g. first.last@colostate.edu).

If you chose a preferred first name during your eID setup or anytime later, your email address will use your preferred first name.

For technical assistance, e-mail help@colostate.edu.

Note: Important notices from CSU are primarily sent through email, including billing, deadline reminders, degree requirements, etc. You are responsible for all information sent to your CSU email address—please ensure you are checking it at least once per week!

Students, staff and faculty in the College of Engineering have a computer account that provides access to the College computer network. Services include:

  • Login access to Engineering lab computers and resources
  • Personal file space on the Engineering College computer network
  • Printing credits for students
  • Access to online applications provided by ETS

Go here to create your ETS account. 

Your Engineering account is separate from the electronic ID (eID) issued by the university. However, you must have your  eID to sign up for an Engineering account
