As a Student or Employee you do not need to 'create' or 'activate' your credentials. Your username and password are automatically generated for you following your acceptance into the university. At this time you should receive an email with your username and a temporary (randomly-generated) password. If you do not receive this email, you will need to contact the Technology Helpdesk at 765-285-1517 to speak to a representative about obtaining your username and password.
Please see this article for further information.
