What is a University Identification Number (UID)?

Your nine-digit University Identification Number (UID) is assigned to you when you apply as a student or become affiliated with Wright State University. Your UID never changes and is never re-used. It replaces the use of your Social Security Number as a permanent, unique ID number identifying you as a member of the university community. The UID, along with your PIN, is used to access the WINGS Express system (see below).
