Student Identification Number
The university uses a ten digit university identification number to identify your permanent records, such as the transcript, registration, grade reports, enrollment certifications, student accounts, etc. This is known as the university i.d. number.
The university does not disclose the student's i.d. number to individuals or agencies outside Indiana University except in accordance with the Indiana University Policy on Student Records. For more information on the confidentiality of student records, visit our link on Public Information and Student Confidentiality.
Students who apply for financial aid are required by federal law to provide a social security number to the university. While this number is used in the processing of financial aid, it is not the student primary identification number.
While in most cases, students will be able to complete their business with the university through OneStart by use of a username and passphrase, there may be occasions when a student id number is required. Students may obtain their university id numbers by viewing the View My Personal Information page in OneStart (see directions below) or by bringing photo identification to the Office of the Registrar.
New students should receive their university i.d. number as part of the admission process.
Students can look up their university i.d. number by following the steps below.
- Login to OneStart. (See "How do I login to OneStart" in the FAQ.)
- Click on the Services tab.
- Click on the Student Self Service link on the left side.
- In the Services & Information area, under the title that says IU Accounts, click on the link that says Lookup my University ID Number.
- Find the heading that says Demographic Information.
The first piece of Demographic Information says ID. Next to the word ID is your university ID number. Whenever using your 10 digit university ID number, include the zeros in front.
