Q. I am a current student and do not know my PID. How do I obtain it?
A. As a current student, you can obtain your PID using the following methods:
Check your Ohio University ID Card. Your PID is printed on the front.
Visit the ID card office for your campus.
Contact the Office of the University Registrar at 740.593.4191.
A. Knowing your PID does not necessarily give anyone access to your personal OHIO information. Services that pertain to your personal records should always require positive physical identification or, if you are using an electronic service, the use of your Ohio ID and password. Be sure, however, to safeguard your card and your password to prevent unauthorized use.
Q. Am I permitted to use PIDs in e-mail correspondence with students or other faculty?
A. Yes. The PID can be used in e-mail correspondence with students or other faculty.
Q. Will the University update its systems, forms, and procedures to adopt the new PID?
A. Yes. The PID is the new identifier that Ohio University will use as the primary key for tracking students, employees and anyone affiliated with the University. PIDs have been assigned to current employees and affiliates who did not already have one. The PID will be a nine-digit number that is not related to or derived from the Social Security number.
Q. What do I do if an employee doesn't know their PID?
