Data and Project Requests

Data Requests

The Registrar's Office receives multiple data requests; we average over 120 ad hoc reports for the Dean of Faculty and Dartmouth academic Departments and Programs yearly. Dartmouth academic Departments and Programs may email with data requests. We do not provide data to students or alumni; please see the Office of Institutional Research website ( for public information about Dartmouth College or contact the Alumni Office for additional services.

The Registrar's Office does not provide research services. Therefore if a request goes beyond a typical data request, it may be considered a "project" subject to review, approval and prioritization by senior officials and possibly faculty committees, and may require the expertise of the Office of Institutional Research and/or others. The Registrar's Office is scheduled to begin implementation of a student data warehouse beginning in AY 2014-15 which will expand the reporting capabilities for student information.

Project Requests

The Registrar's Office initiates and participates in multiple projects each year, and provides functional technical leadership as well as consultation. We are pleased that so many requests for our services come to us and that the Dartmouth community has confidence in our expertise. This, however, has resulted in more requests for projects than we are able to immediately deliver to those who inquire. We are, of course, constrained by resource availability and remain committed to not only delivering high quality project outcomes but continuous high quality Registrarial service throughout the year to our students and Faculty.

We thus have to prioritize all projects, both small and large. While multiple factors influence project timelines and selection, we do so with the following considerations and based on the prioritization factors described. If you have a project or request that requires our resources that you wish to submit to the Registrar's Office, please email and we will provide you with further information about process.

Factors that influence project priority:

  • System is "at risk" or with old technologies supporting it
  • Interdependencies between/among projects and systems
  • Expertise and specific resource availability in both the Registrar's Office and Computing
  • Faculty and student demand, including new faculty legislation
  • Selection as a Divisional priority by the Dean of the Faculty
  • Selection as an institutional priority by the Student System Oversight Committee
