I'm a brand new user.

Welcome to the Center for Educational Performance and Information (CEPI). The best way to get to know us and what it is that we do is to spend some time looking through our website to learn about our data collection and reporting activities. From the CEPI home page, click on "CEPI Applications" on the left navigation bar. Each application page includes manuals as well as help and training materials.

CEPI manages a number of data collection applications, including:

  • Michigan Student Data System (MSDS)
  • Registry of Educational Personnel (REP)
  • School Infrastructure Database (SID)
  • Financial Information Database (FID)
  • Educational Entity Master (EEM)
  • Graduation and Dropout Application (GAD)

State and federal law requires schools to report certain information to CEPI using these applications. The information to be reported varies depending on the type of school/entity. Please see the "Submit Data to CEPI" tab on our home page for information about your specific entity type.

There are several types of users for most CEPI applications. CEPI grants access when we receive a completed security form. Each application requires a separate security form, available on our Application Login and Security Forms web page.
