What are my UCFID and NID?

Your UCFID is your Personal Identification Number. Your UCFID is the key of accessing online registration, class schedule searches, adding or dropping classes, and a lot of other functions, including viewing your grades and fee schedules. You will be asked to select a password when you first are assigned your UCFID. You may change your password at any time.

Your NID is your Network Identification Number. Your NID is the key to accessing the UCF computer network, the Internet, the library, and a world of cyber information. This number is also generated for you when you become a student at UCF for the first time. Again, you need to select and register a password which you may change at any time.
