  • All materials for the UIC and STARR collections are on CEPIs Institutions of Higher Education website.Go to www.michigan.gov/cepi Click on Institutions of Higher Education

    To access the site directly, go to:http://www.michigan.gov/cepi/0,4546,7-113-57943---,00.html*

  • If you are not familiar with this process, the Data Collection Overview and other helpful information for the STARR collection are available on our website: https://www.michigan.gov/cepi/0,4546,7-113-57943---,00.html


  • Date of Birth (DOB) issues (records exist with a DOB prior to 1930 and after 2000)Review records PRIOR to uploading to the MSDS.If records exist (with a DOB before 1930 or after 2000), confirm that is the correct DOB with the students documentation.If you find an existing UIC for the student from your local student information system, students transcript or by searching on the students name in the MSDS, use that UIC. If you do not find an existing UIC and cannot confirm the students correct DOB, do not upload the students record with an erroneous DOB to the MSDS, a new UIC will be generated.Please remember: Longitudinal tracking hinges on the UIC. If a new UIC is generated due to an erroneous DOB, the link to K-12 or other postsecondary information is lost.Questions? Meghann Omo, omom@michigan.gov or (517) 241-2689.*

  • 2012 Key FindingsIncomplete historical reporting of transcriptsCEPI found that all institutions reported transcripts back to the 2008-2009 school year, accomodates current postsecondary reportsCEPI also found some transcript history prior to the 1st STARR collection window, but only goes back for a short periodAmbiguity in SessionDesignator (Academic Year) and SessionName (Term) VariablesWe would want to see the 2010 SessionDesignator for a term occurring between September 2010 and December 2010, as that term is part of the 2010-2011 Academic Year.
