PID: Your Personal Identifier

Access to your PID will be terminated if you are no longer an employee, a retiree, or a sponsored person, and have not been a student.

My VT

My VT is a gateway or portal to Virginia Tech online services and information designed to be used by all Virginia Tech students, faculty, staff, and alumni. The automatic single sign-on capability My VT offers with several university services, such as Hokie SPA, and Departmental Software, uses Central Authentication Services (CAS). Single sign-on means that once you log on to My VT, you won't have to retype your PID and password to access those online services. Featured also in My VT are several information channels that focus on a particular topic. Currently there are over 30 different channels created by various university departments and some channels are from outside sources, like headline news.

Hokies ID

Your Hokies ID is a unique ID for current faculty and staff that resides on the central Virginia Tech Windows servers. Your assigned ID belongs to you and you only. This ID and password serve to grant you access to the primary systems: shared computer resources such as file and printer shares, your Exchange email account, and Office 365 services.

Your ID may also grant other local access, depending on systems implemented on your network. It is important to keep in mind that not all Windows systems are in the same trusted relationship tree as the primary servers, thus you may need localized department IDs for some logons across systems. If you are unsure about a system, contact the administrator in your department.
