What is a Cardinal ID?
Your Cardinal ID is the part of your email address before the @ sign. It’s a unique ID that should be fairly easy for you to remember. It will be used to access much of the technology available at TVCC.

What is a TVIN?
The TVIN, or Trinity Valley Identification Number, is another unique ID generated by our systems. It will not be very easy to remember, but it’s printed on your new school ID card. The purpose of the TVIN is to serve as a replacement for your social security number and to help guard against identity theft. Your TVIN is the new key to check out books from the library and buy food at the cafeteria among other things.
What does the TVIN look like?
The TVIN is a seven-digit number following a 2x2x3 format.
