The mail contains your login name and further instructions. Please follow the instructions and use your initial password as the activation code for your CIT account.
  • After activating your account, you will be asked to select your personal password. At this point you can manage (and if necessary reset) your password by yourself.
  • (!) In case you do not receive an e-mail by the idm-system, please send an e-mail including a scanned ID + your phone number and your degree course to servicedesk(at)fra-uas.remove-this.de.
