Personal Identification Number (PIN)
When registering you will use a special personal identification number (PIN) along with your student number as a security device to ensure confidentiality and to prevent unauthorized registration activity; it also allows you to access your academic record, financial account summary, etc. via Memorial Self-Service.
Your PIN also allows you to access your academic record, financial account summary, etc. via the student web.
If you have registered in the past academic year, your PIN will remain as you have created it. However, if you have not previously registered using the Web or telephone system, your initial PIN will be your birth year and day. For example, a student born on the 16th day of any month in 1975 will have an initial PIN of 197516. After you have entered your initial PIN, you will be asked to change your PIN to one of your choice. This new PIN will replace your original birth year and birth day PIN and therefore cannot be the same number. Every time you access the registration systems from then on the new PIN must be used.
You will be the only one who knows your PIN; therefore, do not forget the number you create. Any person with your student number and PIN has access to your current registration and other records, and can possibly change the courses for which you are registered. If you give any person your PIN, you are taking responsibility for any changes made. If you have reason to believe that an unauthorized person has your PIN, or if you have forgotten your number, contact the Office of the Registrar at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling (709)864-4445.
