Students who have been assigned a Panther ID (PID) number with Florida International University under tuition Plan-B will continue to pay normal tuition and fees to their home university (not FIU).

In order to secure your exchange with FIU during Fall 2020 and/or Spring 2021, please complete the below-steps immediately:


Required Steps:

  1. Create your MyAccounts Log In: MyAccounts is FIU's central authentication system. It provides students with a centralized method for changing passwords and managing their online identity at FIU. (please remember to write down your Panther ID and Password in a secure place):

    STEPS:
    • Go to MyAccounts
    • Sign in using your Panther ID and default password. If you are logging in for the very first time, your default password is the date of birth in the format: ddMonYYYY. Your password is CASE SENSITIVE. You must CAPITALIZE the first letter of the MONTH. Therefore, if your date of birth is April 20, 2009, then your default password is 20Apr2009.
    • After you change your default password, be sure to set your security questions. This will allow you to reset your password in the future.
