About your IU University ID

On this page:


To maintain the privacy of Social Security numbers, Indiana University creates a unique 10-digit identifier called the University ID (UID) for each student and employee. Your UID serves as the key to your student and/or employee record, and should be kept confidential. The Office of Admissions issues UIDs to students (normally included in admission letters sent via postal mail); University Human Resources issues UIDs (also know as Employee IDs) to IU employees.


At IU, student and employee UIDs are classified as University-Internal data. Student UIDs also are protected as student education records under the federal Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). For more, see About institutional data at IU.
