The Office of Institutional Research and Reporting (OIRR) provides timely and accurate analytical information about the College to both our internal and external constituents, for executive decision making and policy development. OIRR is the primary source for current and historical data about student enrollment, demographics and outcomes. We coordinate these services in an objective, systematic, and thorough manner, in direct support of the College’s mission.

Requests for Data

OIRR provides institutional information on our website. Prior to submitting your request for institutional data, please search through the informational reports listed above.

If you did not find the data you were searching for on our web-site, you will have to complete and submit a “Request for Information Form”. It is best to plan ahead and provide us with as much information and notice as possible when requesting information. If needed, someone from the OIRR will contact you to discuss your request in more detail.

When requesting large datasets and trend data for external analysis, please be aware that they require considerable time and effort to prepare. Requests for information may take up to a few days or several weeks which depends on the complexity of your request, the availability of information, and the workload of the OIRR staff at the time of your request. Likewise data requests that are an institutional priority may delay your request. The data that we use for reporting is owned by other departments on campus and contains highly confidential and sensitive information.

Complete all sections of the Data Request Form and submit it along with any supporting documentation that can assist us in completing your request promptly. Save or print a copy of the form for your records. Submit your request to OIRR.
