University ID (UID): Is the nine-digit number (NOT your Social Security Number) assigned to you by the University that will be your ID number throughout your time at the University. It will be used in place of a SSN in many day-to-day University transactions, and is in the format of 1234-56789. To obtain your University assigned nine-digit number see Step Three.

Computing ID: Is the alpha-numeric portion of your University email address in the format of "abc4d" (abc4d@virginia.edu). You will activate this ID in Step One.
