Identity @ UCF



As a UCF applicant, student, faculty, staff, non-paid appointment, sponsored account or alumni, you are assigned 2 unique identifiers, your NID and your UCFID. It is important to understand the difference between these two identities and when each is to be used.

NID – Network ID (2 letters + random numbers) used for logging in to multiple systems on campus including my.ucf.edu portal, VPN, wireless and CS&T managed computer labs. Your NID can be retrieved or the password reset using the links below.

UCFID – Your UCFID is your primary identification number within UCF systems. This number is associated with your student or staff record that contains your personal information as well as grades, registration, advising, schedule, employment, payroll and other data. As of June 1st 2014, your UCFID is printed on the front of newly assigned UCF student / staff ID cards. In addition, there are instructions below for retrieving your UCFID using the my.ucf.edu portal.
