Data & Reporting

Excerpt from our Mission: 

“to provide information and academic services to the University community in an efficient, user‐friendly manner while ensuring accuracy, integrity, and confidentiality of academic records”

The Office of the University Registrar provides unit record data to support the operational needs of the academic units. The data obtained are for internal use only. Most of the data are confidential and protected under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). For more details about this Federal law, please visit FERPA FAQ.

  • If you need aggregate, or longitudinal data, or if you need official data to report outside of Ohio University, then you will need to obtain that data from Institutional Research. Institutional Research provides a significant amount of data on their website and in OBI (Oracle Business Intelligence) on the Institutional Research dashboard. If the website and OBI do not meet your needs, contact the office directly at 740.593.1059.

  • If you need data for Responsibility Centered Management (RCM), then your college Chief Financial and Administrative Officer (CFAO) or the Office of Institutional Research is your data source.

OBI = Oracle Business Intelligence. OBI is the central system supported by the Office of Information Technology for providing access to data and reports at Ohio University.

If you have an ad hoc report or other data need to support your office, please contact Lita Ohlinger, burt@ohio.edu or 740.593.4128. Please include as many details about the criteria for the report as possible and include a desired completion date. We will try to meet your deadline; however, it is best to submit your request at least two weeks in advance of your deadline.
