Dear Current and Former CCSF Students,
The file in question was used in 2000 for providing students that attended in Summer 1999 their grades. You should know that since June 2002, the College stopped using social security numbers as unique identifiers for students and switched to student identification numbers. All grades issued since 2002 are connected to student identification numbers and do not involve the use of social security numbers.
we have no indication that anyone actually used any of this information, I want
to bring this situation to your attention so that you are aware of the actions
you can take to minimize any potential risk of identity theft. As a precaution, you may wish to consider
placing a fraud alert on your consumer credit file. By doing so, you let
creditors know to watch for unusual or suspicious activity, such as someone
attempting to open a new credit card account in your name. This procedure is
described on a separate attachment included with this letter. Information also is available on a website we
have established: http://www.ccsf.edu/securityalert.
The web site includes further suggestions for monitoring your credit and links
to state and federal resources. Finally, we have established a toll-free number
to help answer any additional questions you may have at 1-800-436-0108. This service
will be operational as of
We have a responsibility to safeguard personal information, and all members of the College's workforce take this obligation very seriously. We have worked hard during the past few years to reduce the amount of personal information used for any academic or business reasons to the absolute minimum.
I deeply regret any concern or inconvenience this incident may cause you.
Dr. Philip R. Day, Jr.
