It is the intention of this policy to recognize that Banner identification (ID) numbers will be treated as public identifiers, rather than Social Security Numbers, with appropriate office practices which recognize the non-confidential status of the Banner ID number.

554.2 POLICY

Banner ID numbers are unique, public identifiers for members of the Utah State University community to be used by the official system-of-record and for other purposes where it is important to distinguish among similarly named members of the USU community. Because of their public nature, Banner ID numbers do not constitute proof of identity.
