The NUID (Nebraska University Identification Number) is a unique 8-digit number assigned to all students, faculty and staff members during the admissions or hiring process. This number remains the same across the University of Nebraska and Nebraska State College system. If you've taken classes or worked at another University of Nebraska or state college campus, you may already have an NUID.
