University Identification Number
For other records and services, the university uses an assigned University Identification Number (UIN). Students are required to write their UIN on university petitions and forms as well as personal checks submitted for any payment to the University. Payment by personal check is consent by the student for the University to write the student’s UIN on the check if it is not referenced.
