Your PID (Personal IDentification) is used to access various systems and services on campus. Your PID can be found at ConnectCarolina or on your UNC One Card (nine digits starting with a 7).
An Onyen (Only name you'll ever need) is the identifier you use to gain access to various electronic resources on campus. To obtain an Onyen, go to the Onyen Web site. You must create an Onyen (UNC e-mail account) in order to log in to ConnectCarolina. Personal e-mail accounts cannot be used to log in.
As an enrolled UNC-Chapel Hill student, you are required to have a UNC One Card. The purpose of the card is for identification and use of the libraries. It contains your nine-digit Person ID number or PID. In 1998, the PID replaced the Social Security number as a means of identification.
Your UNC One Card will be deactivated if you withdraw, cancel, or fail to enroll for a particular semester. Upon re-entry to UNC-Chapel Hill, your card will be reinstated for identification purposes and library use for that semester.
If you have purchased a recreation membership, your UNC One Card can be used to access the gym and pool.UNC One Card Office
Part-time Classroom Studies students who have registered for classes at UNC may obtain their UNC One Cards during the first week of the semester. You must take a copy of your course schedule and a photo ID (valid driver's license, state ID card, military ID, or passport) with you to the UNC One Card office. There will be a $15 card fee for all Part-time Classroom Studies students. You will receive your One Card immediately after your photo is taken.
If your new PID number does not appear on your current UNC One Card, you will be required to get a new card made. You will be charged the $15 fee at that time.
If your card is lost or stolen, notify the UNC One Card office or the UNC police department immediately. You will be responsible for all activity generated by your card until it is reported missing. To get a replacement card, you will be charged $10.
State law requires that any student taking four or more hours of classes on campus between 8 am and 5 pm must meet the immunization requirements listed at Campus Health Services. Students taking courses at a distance or off campus are exempt.
For more information, visit Campus Health Services or call 919-966-2281.
It is not necessary to attend in the summer in order to continue from spring to fall. If you do not register for a spring or fall semester, you must be readmitted. You are not considered an active student for these purposes if you are only enrolled in courses offered through Self-paced Courses or Carolina Courses Online and classified as a Visiting Student.
