The Student Information System (SIS) includes a search-and-report tool called Data Center, created by the Office of the Registrar.
Faculty and staff with certain roles have access to Data Center, which is located under “Reporting Tools” in the main menu of SIS. If you are faculty or staff with permission to use SIS and don’t have access to Data Center, you can request access. To do so, please complete the SIS Authorization Form. On the form, fill in the top section; under Additional Roles, write “(A) UW_SR_DEPARTMENT_CENTER” to add the Data Center role; obtain the necessary signatures; then submit as directed on the form.

Under FERPA, the federal law that governs the privacy of student education records, student directory information can be released to the public without student consent. However, students may elect to restrict the public release of directory information. Those who have done so will be excluded from lists provided. Students should allow up to 24 hours for such requests to be reflected in lists.
Interested individuals can obtain lists of student directory information by submitting the form below. It is open to the general public and others who are not school officials, including campus representatives of Registered Student Organizations, outside companies and organizations, and private individuals. Campus staff and faculty may use these lists but must do so with caution, knowing that students who have placed restrictions on the public release of their information have been excluded.
School officials with a FERPA “educational need to know” are exempt from student-placed restrictions.
