Person ID Numbers (PID)
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.
Alumni from 1971 to today can look up their PIDs immediately in the online PID lookup system.
Alumni from 1970 and earlier and non-alumni members of the GAA should e-mail the webmaster who will send you your PID as soon as possible. Please include your full name and class year (if applicable).
