COGNOS is a reporting application that is integrated with Banner modules, such as 'Banner Student', 'Banner Finance', 'Banner Financial Aid', 'Banner CAPP', 'Banner Human Resources', etc..., that allows report Authors and report Consumers to create and run reports through COGNOS.
In compliance to the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) and annual student records audit, the Office of the Registrar requires that for every student data report request, that the 'Student Data Report request Form' be completed in detail and signed by the report Requestor's immediate supervisor (Department Head or College Dean) and sent via email or inter-office mail to Susan Byars, University Registrar and Student Data Custodiam for approval.
We request that you allow at least 10 business days to business days to complete the report request from the time of approval. Depending on the complexity of the request, we may require more time to deliver the report.
Once your request is approved, the report will be generated and sent to the Requestor via e-mail in a MS Excel file format as an attachment.
Student data report requests will be prioritized according to Report Author's workload and resources available, unless instructed otherwise by the University Registrar.
