Upon opening the UIS application tile for the FIRST time, you will be prompted to complete the following information before being directed to the UIS main menu.

    Once completed, you will not be prompted for this again.

  1. Security Question/Answer


    Confirm your identity by entering the default UIS PIN number.
    *PLEASE NOTE: This PIN, Security Question, and Answer will be separate from your Sign-On Portal password. You will need to keep a record of what you create here if you need to reset your PIN in the future.


    The default PIN is in the following format:    
    Capital S, Lowercase j, 8 digits of your X# without the X

                    Example: Sj01234567  (if the X# is X01234567)

    Create a security question and corresponding answer, then click Submit.

  2. Update Notification Information

    This will be the phone number in which you can be reached if there is an emergency on campus or weather-related University closing. An emergency SMS and voice message will be sent to the phone number entered here. 


    If you opt into the Emergency Notification System (Strongly recommended), please check the "Number is current" box.

    (* If you are unable to provide a contact number, you may choose to opt-in later by selecting "I choose not to provide an EN number.")

    • Enter an Area Code number and a Phone number.

    • Then, click "Submit Changes."


          A confirmation of the number you entered will appear.
