General Information


The PantherSoft System is a web-based administrative computer system which FIU implemented as of Fall 2004. This System is used for all your student transactions. PantherSoft integrates your student information and allows you to access your student records online at anytime, from anywhere, further enhancing self-service capabilities

FIU E-Mail

PantherSoft, which is web-based, uses PantherMail as the main form of communication with students. Accordingly, students receive important correspondence from the University via your PantherMail account for students and FIUmail account for Faculty & Staff instead of through postal mail; this includes important billing and financial aid information that is automatically disseminated by the PantherSoft System.

It is important that you keep your E-mail account current (delete unnecessary messages) in order to keep important e-mails from being rejected due to lack of space in your Inbox.

All students enrolled at FIU and taking at least one course in the current semester will automatically have access to an E-mail account. If you are a new student, your FIU-Email account will be available 24 hours after you register.

To obtain your FIU-Email username and password, go to:

Your PantherSoft Account

The PantherSoft System will enable you to view all your information from one place. Once you log in with your Panther ID, you will be able to access your personal information, your financial aid status, enroll in courses, and you will even be able to view detailed information on any negative indicators (holds) you may have.

Also, you will be able to pay for your tuition and fees over the web with a credit card or with an eCheck.

Since PantherSoft is web-based, you will have access to your account 24-hours a day, seven days a week. The only exceptions are for any scheduled maintenance activities and/or upgrades to the System.

If you still have any questions, please contact us at Please keep in mind that password reset requests cannot be processed via e-mail. If you have forgotten your password, you may use the “Forget Password Link” accessible from the PantherSoft login site.

Panther ID

The University provides an identification number, known as the Panther ID, to each student. Once you apply to the University you will be automatically assigned a Panther ID.

If you have any questions please check out the Student FAQ.
