The IHE Request for UIC Collection in the MSDS allows IHEs to obtain or validate Unique Identification Codes for their students. The 10-digit UIC is needed for CEPI to create a student-level P-20 education data connection.
If a student's UIC is unknown, submit that student's record without a UIC (UIC field would be blank).
To validate a student's UIC, submit that student's record with a UIC. Validating a student's UIC ensures that the correct UIC has been assigned to that student's record.
