With your Sorting, your basic registration for HOL is completed. Your student file is being created and your name is on the New Students Lists. Your permanent ID will be assigned instantly, please write it down and do not forget it, you will need it throughout your "HOL Life" and it will never change.
HOL-IDs follow a certain scheme. The first two letters of your HOL Name are followed by a 3-digit number (ab000), where the number indicates when you have registered for HOL. From Summer 2005 on, the lowest unused number is automatically assigned to a new student
- 000 - 199: Summer 2001
- 200 - 299: Mid-Term 2001/02
- 300 - 349: Summer 2002
- 350 - 399: Mid-Term 2002/03
- 400 - 449: Summer 2003
- 480 - 499: Mid-Term 2003/04
- 500 - 549: Summer 2004
- 550 - 599: Mid-Term 2004/05
- 600+ : Summer 2005 until today
There are a few exceptions from these rules, as certain letter combinations ('ma' for example) are very popular. When you change your HOL Name after you have signed up, your HOL-ID will not change! Professors' HOL-IDs start with 'pr_', generally any underscore within an ID indicates HOL staff or admins.
