Personal IDs

previous video next video

KU Online ID: When you joined the university, you set up your KU Online ID and password. In most cases, your KU Online ID is comprised of the first letters of your first and last name, as well as six uniquely generated numbers (j123h456). You will use your KU Online ID and password to access all KU online technologies, as well as your KU-provided computer.  Setting up your KU Online ID was a critical step when you completed the onboarding process and enables you to access HR/Pay, the online tool for reporting your time and/or leave, making updates to personal data, and viewing your paycheck and leave balances.

Employee ID: If you are new state or university employee, your Employee ID will be comprised of seven digits. If you are a previous state or university employee, your Employee ID may be carried over to your new position at KU and may be 7 to 11 characters.

State of Kansas (SOKS) ID:  In addition to these two IDs you will also have a State of Kansas (SOKS) ID. Your SOKS ID is used when accessing your W-2 through the State of Kansas system and when accessing accounts for various State of Kansas benefit programs like HealthQuest portal, Optum Health Savings Account, and NueSynergy Flexible Spending Accounts

You can locate both your Employee ID and your SOKS ID on your paycheck in HR/Pay (to access your paycheck see information here).
