Students -

Enrolled Students - As per directed by the instructor, you should be able to make an account by going to https://accounts.engr.ucsb.edu/create and using your UCSBNetID to create your account.  If you are a returning or continuing student, you do not need to do this.

Extension Students - You will need contact help@engineering.ucsb.edu to make a request for an account if you have not received an Account Invitation.  You will also need to provide information of Proof of Enrollment in the course.

Crashing/Adding Students - If you are a student who is crashing/adding the course, ECI can only create a temporary account that will usable for the first 5 weeks of the quarter.  After which, you will need to be enrolled in the course or provide proof you are enrolled in the course in order to have it extended to the end of the quarter.

NOTE - Extension students and students crashing a course who need an account - You will NOT be able to use the Create an Account link as the system relies on you being enrolled via the GOLD system.

Extension does not use the GOLD system, so your UCSBNetID will not be considered valid by the system.

Students crashing the course will also not be considered valid by the system due to not being in an eligible class yet.  You will need to submit a request to help@engineering.ucsb.edu for an account, including the class you will be enrolling in.
