Your Virginia Tech User ID

What’s a Virginia Tech Username?

Your Virginia Tech Username (formerly your 'PID') will be your electronic identifier throughout your years at Virginia Tech. It’s used for everything - signing up for orientation, registering for classes, checking your email, participating in classes, etc.

Please be sure to choose your Virginia Tech Username appropriately, because this identifier will be visible to professors, potential employers, and others.

How do I get a Virginia Tech Username?

You will receive an email to create your Virginia Tech Username after your enrollment deposit has been received and processed. Note: This may take several days for online payments or up to two weeks for mailed payments.
