Bear ID Distribution
Before using certain electronic resources (such as electronic mail) individuals must be issued a BEAR ID. BEAR IDs are automatically assigned to all students, faculty and staff but must be activated before they are used. The following sections describe the process for BEAR ID activation depending upon the individual's classification.
Fall and Spring Semester Hours
BEAR IDs are only issued in person and the requester must present a valid Baylor ID card before the BEAR ID will be issued. When the Bear ID is issued the student will also set a password that may be used to access computing facilities and electronic mail. See the Password Guidelines document for more information about passwords and keeping them secure.
