New Account Information

Welcome to Tarleton State University!  As a full-fledged member of the Tarleton community, you will need access to several computing and technology resources, so we have created a new account for you, your NTNET login.

Your new account goes into effect now, and provides access to many systems you’re going to need, including myGateway, Blackboard, computer login across campus, Dick Smith Library databases, Stephenville campus parking permit registration, and campus Wi-Fi. You may have used myGateway previously, logging in with your University ID (UID) and PIN.  As of now, your PIN is no longer valid, and has been replaced by the new NTNET login password that you will be setting up.

You should activate or “claim” your new NTNET login now.

How do I test my NTNET login?         

Once you have your new NTNET login set-up and the password is changed, it’s time to test it out. The easiest way to do this is by visiting myGateway and attempting to login with your new NTNET username and password.

Who do I contact if I have questions?
