Registrar's Review

The Focus

How often are you asked for student or enrollment data? Monthly, weekly, daily? What office do you contact? Institutional Research, Enrollment Services, the Office of the Provost or the Office of the Registrar? At times, finding the right data can be challenging. To assist you with locating data that are useful to you, a new website has been developed:
www.missouristate.edu/registrar/data.htm. This website provides quick links to the most commonly-used data at Missouri State. Don't forget to add this webpage to your favorites!
