Activating your online identity

If you already have a Ryerson online identity, log in to the my.ryerson portal and proceed through the prompts.

If you do not have an online identity, complete the online identity activation form. Have your Ryerson student number ready - this can be found in your official acknowledgement email from the university.

The online identity activation form is unavailable due to system maintenance daily from 3:00 a.m. to 5:30 a.m. ET.

Important security note: If you need to step away from the computer before completing the online identity activation form, be sure to close your browser to prevent others from tampering with your account setup.

Troubleshooting activation issues

Once you’ve begun the activation process, immediate solutions to common issues can be found by clicking the “Online Identity Activation FAQs” link at the bottom of the activation form.

After completing the form, please allow up to 24 hours for your online identity to be created before signing in.
