Rhonda Vidal, Human Resource Manager

“This is must training for all new folks to the human resource function. Not only do you learn the fundamentals of HR but you also get to learn from your peers the challenges they face. Very good chance you’ll have a different perspective and understanding of the human resource function within your organization.”
Peter Frank, Director of Finance

“The wealth of information covering compensation, benefits, employee development, and performance management was wonderful. Since my specialty area has always been in recruitment and placement, I had a hard time getting my supervisors to approve training outside that area. The SHRM Essentials program was a great way to gain education in other HR disciplines.”

Social Security Number

Why it's Important

A Social Security Number (SSN) is required to identify student's permanent records. The Midland College registration system automatically encrypts a student’s social security number into a student identification number. The student ID is used for all internal printed material and provides additional protection of a students’ privacy.

Students are urged to become familiar with the Student ID Number and to use it when communicating with College offices. Students are requested to provide their SSN to the College for maintenance of their student records; it also allows the College to meet federal and state-reporting requirements.
