Data Requests

Staff filling out assessment forms.

UGA Student Affairs departments, and faculty and students conducting research related to student affairs, can request access to information related to student demographics, contact information, academic performance, term information, academic details, and pre-enrollment information. Please note the following:

  1. LSI requires a minimum of seven business days to complete data requests.
  2. Requests for access to data in the Student Affairs Data Block must demonstrate a legitimate educational purpose or business need to know.
  3. LSI reserves the right to withhold data for students who have placed restrictions on their personal information.
  4. Data Users must agree to comply with the Student Affairs Data Block Policy.
  5. Updated data for each semester is available approximately three weeks after the beginning of the semester. LSI will confirm that the requested data are available for the desired semester. LSI cannot, for example, provide currently enrolled data for the spring 2018 semester in December 2017. To provide the most accurate data for spring 2018 enrollment, LSI would wait until at least three weeks into the spring semester to provide the demographics of students enrolled for spring semester.

Requests for access to data contained in the Student Affairs Data Block must be submitted via the Student Affairs Data Block Access Request Form. Click here to preview the intake fields.
