Option to Use New University ID Number When Logging Into ISIS Online
As part of its continuing effort to reduce the use of Social Security numbers (SSNs) at the University, the Department of Information Technology and Communication (ITC) has added a new option to ISIS Online to allow users to log in with their new University ID numbers rather than their ISIS IDs (SSNs for most people).
At the ISIS Online page http://www.virginia.edu/isis, users can select to log in either “By University ID” or “By ISIS ID (SSN).” The default selection is “By University ID”. Returning users who have already set up a password can continue to use that password with either log-in method. First time users may utilize either ID and should click “First Time Users” to establish a password.
Although users are encouraged to use their University ID numbers, the ISIS ID (SSN) option has been retained to ease the transition.
Although other academic transactions will continue to require the use of SSNs for now, this is intended as one step in the on-going process of decreasing the use – and increasing the protection – of sensitive data at the University.
