What is a PID number?

The Person ID Number (PID) is an identification number assigned to all persons, including alumni, affiliated with the University. This number is designed to be a universal number (PID or Person ID) that is unique to the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. The number is nine digits long and replaces all existing numbers previously used on campus. The PID is the primary record keeping key for all departments within the university and must be used for all communication. PID numbers are directory information and can only be used to confirm your identity at UNC. In October 1999, all previous numbers were changed to PID numbers. For more detailed information, visit the UNC PID office web site.
