MOSIS -- Directions for User Access
The Unique ID system assigns a 10-digit ID to a student based on several pieces of data about that student (i.e. first name, last name, date-of-birth, race, gender, etc.). There are two ways to assign an ID number: “batch file” submission or “online” submission.
The “batch file” submission is a file extraction from your local student information system that will contain all of the students in your district. This file is submitted via the Web. The file is processed, and each student is assigned an ID. The “online” submission allows a user to key in the information about a student which is then processed, and the student is assigned an ID.
There are two levels of security built into the system. One is district-level security, which allows the user to submit student records for all students within the district. The second is building-level security, which allows the user to submit student records only for the students within that building.
