    *In 2014-15, the Office of Institutional Research went through an update of its database procedures and had to rebuild the tables it uses to publicly present data. We chose to start with five years of data to publicly report. One of the things introduced was a stronger delineation between Majors and Concentrations. Views have been added that break Majors out into their specific concentrations. If you have need for data prior to 2009, please feel free to fill out our REQUEST FORM for additional data.

    New definitions for race and ethnicity have been adopted to implement the US Office of Management and Budget’s (OMB) 1997 Standards for Race and Ethnicity. Under the new guidelines, individuals may select an ethnicity and one or more races. Hispanic is defined as a person of Cuban, Mexican, Puerto Rican, South or Central American, or Spanish culture or origin, regardless of race. To match Federal reporting guidelines, all who select Hispanic will be reported under this category and non-Hispanic individuals who select more than one race will be reported in the category titled, Two or More races. Those who select non-Hispanic and a single race will be reported under that race. The new definitions separate Asian, and Native Hawaiian and Other Pacific Islander, however historical data reported under Asian may include Pacific Islanders.

    We are currently in the process of switching our data (including historical data) to the new definitions. Race/Ethnicity Data taken from this site prior to September 2010 may not exactly match current racial/ethnic role-ups due to the new definitions. Please let us know if you have any questions.

    Because head counts, hours, finances, and other elements of the University are always changing, Freezes - snapshots - are taken to use as static references

    As a practice, we try to take these freezes on a consistent calendar basis (take the snapshots the same time each year).

    After we freeze a set of data, we then take the time to confirm the data, and correct any errors using a consistent set of rules and practices before releasing the numbers to the general public.

    The general calendar when we anticipate public release:
    • Student Freeze: November
    • Employees Freeze: October
    • Financial Freeze: August
    • Sponsored Programs Freeze: November
    • Graduate Assistants: January
    • Student Credit Hours: November, March, August (the only one where we are using full academic year)
