eID Naming Requirements
VCU eID names are automatically generated by using a combination of up to 13 characters taken from an individual's legal (United States) last name, first initial, middle initial, and in some cases up to two (2) additional digits.
- Example: James L. Smith - smithjl2
At the present time, VCU is unable to offer or create custom eIDs. Automatic eID generation is essential to ensuring consistency across diverse technology systems, and allows us to provide you with the best technology usage experience at VCU.
