SID and PIN Overview

To access student records and online services, you must have a valid student identification  number (SID) and pin  number (PIN). Student online services are available seven days a week from 5:00 am to 11:00 pm.

SID - Student Identification Number:
The college assigns a 9-digit student identification number to every student who applies to South Seattle College. Effective Winter Quarter 2012, new students may use the same SID assigned by another Washington community or technical college. Students must provide their correct social security number when applying on the web application system to take advantage of this option. 

PIN - Personal Identification Number:
Your initial PIN number is established by the college and is your birthdate in MMDDYY format (April 27, 1980 = 042780). For enhanced security, your PIN number can be changed.

Student Identification Card
Students taking 3 or more credits are required to have a student identification card. Students enrolled in ABE, ESL, Community Service, Parent Co-op or Senior Adult Ed programs have the option to purchase a card. The fee is $7.50 and provides  library privileges and computer lab and fitness center access.

Lost or Forgotten SID or PIN?
Please bring valid photo identification to the Registration Office or complete and submit the Request for Student Identification Number form.
