IHE Request for UIC Collection Components

*CEPI initially considered collecting race/ethnicity information when institutions obtained a student's UIC, because Michigan must report subgroup data to the U. S. Department of Education. However, race/ethnicity is collected as part of the Student Transcript and Academic Record Repository Collection. Therefore, it does not need to be collected when the student's UIC is obtained. Removing the component would change the collection schema, and CEPI did not want institutions to have to modify their extracts. Therefore, the component remains optional.
