Getting Started for Employees

Information Technology is an integral part of your position at Albany State University. The following steps will help you meet the technology requirements of the University.

Find your RAM ID

Your RAM ID is generated once you are hired with Albany State University. Your RAM ID is the nine-digit number located in your hiring packet. You can go to the Albany State University ID Lookup to retrieve your RAM ID. The RAM ID is used as a unique identifier for the campus community members.

Test your Network ID

Your Network ID is used to access campus computers, email, wireless, SharePoint and more. It is important that you test your ID before classes start. Go to, click on Faculty/Staff in the top (gold) menu bar, and go to "Employee Email". Login with your Network ID and password. If you are successful, you will be logged in to your Faculty/Staff e-mail account. If you need assistance, please contact the ITS Helpdesk at 229-500-4357 or visit in person on the first floor of the James Pendergrast Memorial Library (East Campus) or the Technology Building (West Campus).

Check your ASU Faculty/Staff e-mail account

Remember that Albany State University will send all electronic communications to your ASU Faculty/Staff e-mail address. You can sign-in to your faculty/staff email account using your Network ID and password.
