??help with app

<p>Why does Michigan ask for your Michigan ID number on the common app? I did register my S when he was a sophomore in high school but did not save the mailings they've sent. I was wondering if his ID number was part of that initial registration. Why would he even have an ID number before applying? Can anyone help or explain what they are asking? Also on tips for the essay it says you get a gold star for writing your name and ID number on the top of each essay.</p>

<p>never mind ..he figured it out..when you register at Michigan during high school you get an 8 digit ID.. he has it..</p>
