I was upset about them changing from using my SSN to a proprietary number scheme

What? Are you saying you were content with them using your social security number as an means of unique identification? I am not sure about the specifics, but I know there is legal restriction involving using someone's SSN for anything but social security. Secondly, my university does the same thing, and I don't like the idea at all. Sometimes I have to fill it out on scantrons and other forms that include my full name. By law, I believe the school has a certain deadline before, assuming my SSN is used for, as they sometimes call it, "my student ID number" has to be changed.
