The Alberta Student Number (ASN) is a number generated by Alberta Education in order to uniquely identify each student. Each student will be permanently assigned a unique ASN. If the student is registered at a new school, changes their address, or changes their legal name, their ASN will remain unchanged.
For technical reasons, within PASI the Alberta Student Number (ASN) is identified as a State Province ID, as this term is used by the Student Interoperability Framework (SIF) as a generic definition of a government-based unique identifier.
