Student ID vs. KU Online ID
Your student ID is comprised of seven numbers and is one of the first identifiers you receive when you join the university. Keep this number handy as it will be used for various student services and class exams or evaluations.
Once you were admitted, you used your Student ID to set up your KU Online ID and password. Your KU Online ID is comprised of the first letters of your first and last name, as well as six uniquely generated numbers, (e.g.: j123h456). This KU Online ID and password will be used to access all KU technologies including, but not limited to, Jayhawk Wireless, email and Blackboard.
