MSDS: IHE Request for UIC

IHE Request for UIC Collection

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.

See the CEPI Calendar Page for our master calendar of deadlines and collection dates.
