Before students can grant a parent, friend or other third parties access to their academic and financial records at the University of Cincinnati, the other party must have UC credentials which include:
- UCID - a 9 character alpha-numeric id beginning with "M"
- USERNAME - a combination of the last name, first name and middle initial. Usually it is the first 6 characters of the lastname, the first character of their middle name. If the combination has already been used then the system will assign a user name that is available.
- PASSWORD - The default password is Uc!mmddyyyy where mmddyyyy is the user's date of birth. Users will be required to set up a new password when they first login.
