LOIS Pin Reset

Your PIN is the unique six-digit number that you created the first time you logged into LOIS. For security reasons, all users are prompted to change their PINs the first time that they log on to LOIS. If you have forgotten what this number is, please follow the steps listed below to reset your PIN.

To reset or change your PIN:

  1. Go to LOIS
  2. Type in your X-ID for User ID and then click Forgot PIN?
  3. You will be prompted to answer the original security question that you set up the first time you logged into LOIS. Answer the question and Submit Answer.
  4. Type in a new six-digit number for your PIN. You are required to enter your PIN twice. Click Reset PIN to finish the process.

If you are unable to complete that process, you can contact Admissions at (352) 323-3665 or email with your name, X-ID, and date of birth requesting a LOIS PIN reset.
