The University of Cincinnati takes very seriously its responsibility to safeguard student records and identification privacy. To enhance your identity security, UC has a unique identifier for each individual at the University, known as the UCID. The UCID is your student identification number, used for interfacing with faculty and college advisors regarding your day-to-day student business. For example, the UCID identifies you for your instructors on their class rosters and on your exams. When you contact your college or any UC administrative office, you will provide your UCID so that office's personnel can open your individual records. Your UCID will be linked to all of your UC academic and administrative records - your class schedule, tuition and fees bills, library access, grades and transcript.
The University of Cincinnati uses a secure Central Login Service for students, faculty and staff to access essential online services and tools. This includes registering for classes, paying tuition and fees, checking financial aid, accessing courses through Canvas, accessing your UC email account, online library resources and more - all using the same Username and Password. If you do not yet have a U.S. social security number, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to obtain your login credentials.
