The Setup Code Service

Visit the Setup Code Service

To confirm your identity, you will be asked to provide:

  • your PennID number (the middle 8-digit sequence of numbers on your PennCard)
  • your date of birth
  • an email address where we can reach you

A letter containing your Setup Code will be mailed to the address you choose from any of the addresses Penn has on file for you the following business day. Please allow 4-5 business days for the letter to arrive in the continental United States. International mailings may take longer. Important: If your letter does not arrive, send a follow-up query to pennkey@isc.upenn.edu rather than requesting a second Setup Code. For security purposes, a later request will nullify a previously requested Setup Code, so if the Setup Code you originally requested arrives late, it won't be useable.

Note: Individuals with Non-Persistent PennKeys may not obtain a Setup Code through the Setup Code Service.
