Any active UCSB student, faculty, or staff that works directly in support of students’ education is eligible for a UCSB GitHub account.
They can log in using their UCSBnetID Username and Password to access GitHub.
Due to the licensing requirements for GitHub, we can only offer the service to active UCSB Student, Faculty or Staff members.
If you are not one of the above, you will need permission from a UCSB Department member under their sponsorship, with them making a guest/affiliate UCSBnetID through the Identity Annex.
You tried to log onto https://github.ucsb.edu and your credentials don't work
The most common mistake we have seen is people using the wrong credentials on https://github.ucsb.edu.
You should be using your UCSBnetID Account Username and password to link to your personal github account.
If you are unsure what your UCSBnetID Password is, you can reset it at https://im.ucsb.edu/idm/manage for your account.
Please also note that you are creating/using a personal Github account and then linking it to the UCSB Github through single sign in (SSO)
Password reset for your personal Github account via recovery email is at: https://github.com/password_reset
