Our Best Answer - What is my student ID number?

Your Student ID Number

The student ID number is a student’s PERM number. It is provided in the student’s Acceptance Letter and found on the student’s Access Card.  If a student forgets their ID/PERM number, they can use the Forgot Student Perm Number utility to look up your ID number. If you do not have or cannot recall your Social Security Number, please contact the Office of the Registrar at
