IHE Request for UIC Collection Components

The Personal Demographics Component is optional in this collection. Initially, CEPI 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. Race/Ethnicity is collected as part of the Student Transcript and Academic Record Repository (STARR) Collection. Therefore, it does not need to be collected when the student's UIC is obtained. Removing the component would change the schema for the collection, and CEPI did not want institutions to have to modify their extracts. Therefore, the component remains optional.
