The Office of the Registrar updated the Registration Policies page to address the use of scripts, robots, and automated queries against university systems. The updated policy states:
Because use of scripts, robots, or other automated queries can adversely impact University network and computing resources and interferes with equal access to registration, such automated querying of registration-related resources is expressly forbidden. Violators may have their access to University network and computing resources terminated and may be subject to action by the University under applicable law, regulation, or policy, including but not limited to, discipline under any applicable University conduct code
Questions about this and other registration policies should be submitted through the Office of the Registrar contact form.
The Office of the Registrar in partnership with the Office of the CISO is pleased to announce the availability of a new online training module for UW faculty and staff. This brief training module (15 minutes) illustrates best practices for handling records that contain Social Security Number (SSN) information.
The Office of the Registrar is currently pursuing methods of limiting the use of SSNs from electronic student records and transcripts to better enhance the privacy of student data.
In Winter quarter of 2012, 92.5% of all grades came in on time! This figure represents the best on-time submission of grades the University has seen since we started tracking this data four years ago.
The Office of the Registrar thanks all staff and faculty that have worked to make this success possible.
Online grade submission for Winter 2012 classes is open.
Grades are due at 5 p.m. on Tuesday, March 20.
Online submission will close at that time.
More information about grading, including links to instructions for using GradeBook and GradePage, can be found in our Grade Submission Newsletter Winter 2012
If you are a staff or faculty member with accesses to the Enterprise Data Warehouse (EDW), you might have run the online Student Degree Information report.
This report displays students who have applied for and/or been granted a degree and their contact information, as well as other demographic and academic information. Report filters include degree quarter, college, department, degree status, and various demograhic information.
Changes and Benefits
Previously, the Student Degree information report displayed only current and future quarters in which a degree application exists, as well as the past four quarters. As of February 17, 2012 we are pleased to announce that the report now also includes the ability to select up to ten years of past quarter information. (Note: This report can take a while to run depending the number of degree programs and quarters the user selects. Please be as conservative as possible in your selections so as not to bog down the system).
Collaboration is key
The addition of historical information to this report could not have been possible without the hard work and dedication of several departments working together. We would like to acknowledge the following offices and individuals for successfully implementing this important change:
- Advising community: Crystal Eney, Brooke Miller
- Decision Support Services: Alexis Chin, Eric Elkins, Gordy Moll, Ann Wunderlin
- Office of the Registrar: Randy Byers
- Planning and Budgeting: Alice Few
- Student Information Systems: Laurel Cheap
