As part of release 6.3, staff can no longer call up a student in FlexSIS using only the last 7 digits of a SID — they must use the entire, 9-digit SID. This enhancement prepares for the new SID format. The current SID format only allows 33,333 SIDs to be allocated each year. 2005 FlexSIS admissions are to be larger due to International Office applications, offers and admissions, as well as Faculty of Health Sciences and Orange Campus admissions.

We prepared several options for review. Considerations included interface compatibility, a check digit, and preserving the year indicator. The Project Board approved the new SID format for 2005 and onward as follows:

   3YYNNNNNX

where:

   YY = 2-digit year indicator (05 next year)
   NNNNN = 5-digit number (up to 99,999 SIDs)
   X = Check digit
