TXShop: How do I get my UT EID and why do I need it?

All students, faculty, and staff at UT Austin should already have a UT EID. In addition, some students and employees at other schools in the UT System may already have an EID that has been issued by their school, or they may have a Guest EID. The UT EID allows us both to identify our customers and to maintain the security of the store.

Before buying anything in TXShop, customers who have purchased software from SDS in the past should make sure that their EID is associated with their customer records in MySDS. If it is not, click on Request access to records in MySDS. Otherwise, you may not be permitted to purchase certain items in TXShop.

If you do NOT yet have a UT EID, you can create a Guest EID through UT EID Self-Service Tools. Be sure to remember the password you create! If you have purchased software from SDS in the past, log in to MySDS to request access to your records. You can then purchase software in TXShop and review your licensing history and status in MySDS.
