All new K-State employees, except student employees, need to create/register a K-State eID. The eID will become their K-State user name and will become part of their K-State e-mail address. It will also be used to enroll in classes, access K-State Online, view/update Employee Self Service/HRIS (i.e., paycheck data, personnel information, leave balances, etc.) and provide access to other resources.

Instructions\Register for an eID:

K-State eID - Granting Privileges to New Employees

After new employees create/register a K-State eID, it is IMPORTANT to grant new employee privileges (excluding hourly and graduate students) so they have immediate access to K-State e-mail and calendar, K-State Alerts emergency notification system, and other university resources.

This process may also be used to keep an e-mail account active for an employee who has been separated from the university and will be reappointed.

Questions regarding registering a K-State eID or granting privileges to new employees may be directed to the IT Help Desk at or at 785.532.7722.
