1. Difference between Username and Student ID

Username - typically your first and middle initials and full/partial last name and possibly including number. For example, if your name is Allie Susan Duncan, your username may be asduncan. Your username and password is used for:

  • login to computers at UAS
  • access to your UAS webmail
  • access to your class websites at UAS Online

Student ID Number - an eight digit number (for example, 3xxxxxxx) is automatically assigned to you on your  first attendance at UAS. This student ID# corresponds to your student records in the UAS database. Your student ID# is  used to access:

  • UAOnline- access to your UAS student records such as applications and registration, grades, financial aid, student account, class schedule, etc. (This can be in person, over the phone, or online through UAOnline.)
  • uses a PIN
