The Office of the Registrar serves as the custodian of student records and course data for the university. The process to receive access to student records and course-related information is administered in compliance with federal, state, and university regulations.
These student-statistics reports aggregate data to answer general questions about the UW–Madison student enrollment, degrees conferred, and grades given. The fall-term enrollment report contains both student headcount for the Fall term and degrees-conferred statistics for the past fiscal year (July 1 to June 30).
Public data requests
Publicly releasable student directory information can be obtained via email by submitting a request online. Students who have placed a restriction on the release of their information are omitted from lists. The request form and information about the process can be found here.
Faculty and staff data requests
Some student data are available through Data Center, a self-service report tool in the Student Information System (SIS). If you are a UW–Madison faculty or staff member and have been authorized to use SIS, you can find out if you have access to Data Center by looking under “Reporting Tools” on the main SIS menu. Read more about Data Center, and see screenshots of some sample searches, here.
Faculty and staff who need to contact a specific population of students, such as “all undergraduate seniors,” may also wish to consider using DoIT’s WiscList Custom service.
School officials with other student data needs, as well as campus researchers seeking to access student records, should contact our reporting staff at firstname.lastname@example.org.
