PIN
(Personal Identification Number)

You will need your personal identification number (PIN) and Social Security number (SSN) to access your Chipola information. All students enrolled at Chipola beginning with Fall 2000 have been assigned an 8-digit PIN according to the following criteria.

  • The first four digits of the PIN equal the last four digits of your SSN.
  • The next two digits of the PIN equal your numeric birth month (i.e. January = 01, February = 02, December = 12, etc.).
  • The last two digits of the PIN equal the numeric YEAR of your birth.

EXAMPLE: If your social security number is 123-45-6789 and your birthday is January 6, 1965, your pin would be 67890165.

Your PIN should be valid for at least 2 years. If you forget your PIN or you would like to change your PIN, please visit the Registrarís Office in the Administration Building (Bldg. A) for assistance.

How to Change/Reset your PIN

Students are allowed to change their PIN at any time.  At this time Chipola has an automatic system in place to allow the student to change his/her PIN online.  It also can be done at the Records and Admissions Office.   If you do not want to change your pin online, please print the PIN Change/Reactivate Request Form, complete it and mail it to the Records and Admissions Office.  Please allow about a week for the form to be processed.
Chipola will keep the PINs active for a minimum of 2 years; after that, students' information may be migrated due to space constraints.  If a student needs to see his/her information after it has been migrated, please contact the Records and Admissions Office to reactive it.

Chipola encourages students to change their PIN and to keep it confidential.
