Submit requests for changes using the online AIM Student Duplicate/Update form. The following procedure can be used for a student who is still actively enrolled. Archived records may not be modified. Contents • NAME and/or DATE OF BIRTH CORRECTION OR UPDATE • Student completes a new registration form to change name. • Site Registrar submits request for change using the online AIM Student Duplicate/Update form. • SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER CORRECTION OR UPDATE • Site Registrar may add Social Security number to blank fields when updating a previous student or adding a new student. • Contact District Registrar for procedures when an existing Social Security Number requires a change.

Update Provider code Book Chapter • The Provider Code identifies which provider a student is enrolled with as well as which transcript will print from the student’s permanent record. The field is located on the Demographics 1 screen in the lower left portion of the screen. • It is possible for a student to be enrolled in classes with two different providers. When this occurs the Provider selected is determined by the importance of reporting. • Example: MAEP Adult High School Diploma takes precedence over CCOC Evening tuition classes because the Provider Code will determine the MAEP diploma requirements used on the transcript and grad check. • Example: CCOC Day concurrent student takes precedence over MAEP concurrent student due to grade and credit reporting to the home high school. • Contact the District Registrar if you need help determining which provider to select. Contents
Adult grad year Book Chapter • The “Adult Grad Yr” and “Grad Date” fields are located below the Provider Code on the Student Demographics 1 screen and are used by MAEP in their Adult High School Program only. The dates are set after the student is determined to be a MAEP graduate. These fields link the permanent transcript requirements for the school year. These requirements affect the permanent transcript department summary. • The “Grad Date” is always the graduation ceremony date, even if the student completes all requirements earlier in the school year. • Please contact the District Registrar if you suspect a student’s record contains incorrect data. • MAEP High School Diploma Site Registrars GO TO Grades and Credits.
