Dear xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx:

Each campus in the Universaty of Hawai‘i system currently uses a different form of student identifacation that leads to inconsistencies and delays for transfer students. System administration is presently taking the necessary steps to address this issue with student identifacation. The new design will standardize the appearance and information contained on the card and will enable students to conduct business at any Universaty of Hawai‘i system campus. To rebuild our database of student information, we ask that you provide the following information: Student identifacation number and date of birth.

We appreciate your assistance in helping us make the Universaty of Hawai‘i a better educational system. Respond to this request by clicking "Reply" and including the information below in the reply e-mail. Please respond to this request by no later than Monday, May 2nd, 2013.
