Getting Started for Students

Information Technology is an integral part of your education 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 apply to Albany State University. Your RAM ID is the nine-digit number located on your acceptance letter. 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, wireless, WEPA Printing, the Housing (StarRez) Portal and more. The Network ID is the first part of your student email. Go to, click on "Students" in the main (blue) menu, then select "Student Resources", and go to "Student E-mail" (under Academic Resources). Log in with your Network ID and password. If you are successful, you will be logged into your ASU email 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).
