Your k-number is very important!

Write it down and keep it in a safe place, just like you would other important information.

Sometimes your k-number is called your User ID, Log In ID, or College ID. No matter the name, the number is the same! When you’re asked for an official Kirkwood ID, use your k-number.

If you can't find your k-number, please use the look up button above. Once you complete the form, you'll receive an email containing your k-number at the email address we have on file for you. If your email address is not on file, you will need to go to any Kirkwood service counter and provide a photo ID to get your k-number.
