This number begins with 000, is 9 digits long, and can be found on your acceptance letter.
You need a NJIT-ID or Social Security Number to create your NJIT University Computing ID (UCID). A UCID is required for everyone who is a member of the NJIT community. For more information about what a UCID provides you with, click here.
Please note that when creating your UCID, it is important to enter all your information, including your name, exactly as it appears on the acceptance letter you received from the Office of University Admissions even if you believe it is incorrect!!!
