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.
Your UCID is a nine-character identifier. All UCIDs begin with the letter “M” followed by eight numbers (for example, “M00345678”). Your UCID may have a zero (“0”) as one of its characters but it will never have the letter “O”. The first character “M” is the only letter in the UCID.
Look up your UCID
If you visit campus to utilize on-campus facilities, please note that a valid student ID is required to use libraries, computer labs, and sport and recreation facilities. The UC ID also serves as the Bearcat Campus Card, a debit card that can be used in all campus vending machines, shops and the UC Bookstore. More information about the Bearcat Campus Card.
