What is NID?

When you first join the UCF community, the UCF system generates your Network ID (NID) by semi-randomly combining two letters with unique random numbers. Your NID is your unique user ID and will never be assigned to another individual.

You can use your NID to sign on and access many University systems and resources such as the ucf.edu portal.

Your NID’s primary purpose is to electronically authenticate you to UCF systems that contain your sensitive UCF related data. You must take precautions to protect your NID and NID password by not sharing it with anyone.

NID account locked?

Your NID may become locked due to repeated automatic sign-on attempts made by devices, computers, or websites using an old password. Follow these steps to prevent and fix future NID account lockouts:

  • Delete or “forget” any UCF wireless networks on your wireless devices (e.g., smart phones, tablets, laptops, game systems, streaming hardware, “Internet of Things” (IoT) devices, etc.)
  • Delete or clear any saved passwords in all of your device’s browsers.
  • Delete any operating system saved password repositories. Take care to remove any saved Outlook client passwords.
  • Sign out of all services (email, wireless, myUCF, Webcourses, other UCF webpages, etc.) that may be storing your NID credentials.
  • Log off and power down all devices.
  • Reset your NID password.
  • Turn on devices one at a time and update them to use your new NID password. Take care to update mobile device wireless and email accounts separately.
  • If your account locks after powering up the most recent device, that device may still contain a saved password. Try the steps again leaving that device powered down.

If your NID account becomes locked or your password has been changed without you initiating the action, please immediately contact the UCF IT Support Center at 407-823-5117 and alert the Security Incident Response Team at SIRT@ucf.edu.

What is UCFID?

When you first join the UCF community, the UCF system generates your UCFID (sometimes called EMPLID). Your UCFID is a unique random number that serves as your primary identification within the UCF system.

Your UCFID links your student, staff, or faculty records which contain personal information as well as grades, schedule, employment, payroll, and other data. You cannot use your UCFID to sign on to any system at UCF.

Use your UCFID when identifying yourself to a UCF office that is accessing your records. For example, they may ask for your UCFID when scheduling an advising appointment, checking out a library book or when an employee is working with HR.
