Important Notes

Permissions actions are not included in this IDE, although a permission action may be a last taken action. 'Term' with no qualifier (e.g. 'Last action taken term') refers to the term in which the student is/was enrolled or received an action. (There are some records for students who are not enrolled during a term but had an action taken on them during that term.) The 'Include Academic Plan?' and 'Include Academic Advisor?' fields toggle whether to include academic plans or academic advisor information in results. These fields exist to minimize row duplication if desired by the end user. If 'No' is selected for either field, warning text informing the user that academic plan or academic advisor information was not included in results appears in the academic plan or academic advisor fields. You may filter on academic plans and academic advisor information both with and without including this information in the final results. If you do not wish to filter on these fields, the default is set to all values.

Academic Planning, Student Record
Campus ID

This is simply a unique student identifier (10 digits). It may occasionally change at the student's request. It is not the same as ID in the Student Information System (SIS) or ID in the Human Resources System (HRS).

Student Record
School or College

Those faculty units headed by a dean. The dean is the chief executive officer of the school or college, and is appointed by the chancellor under search and screen procedures as set forth in 6.49. The dean must hold a tenured faculty rank as set forth in Chapter 7 of these rules. Other subunits of the university that include the term "school" in their titles are not considered schools for purposes of this chapter; they may be designated by the chancellor, in consultation with the University Committee, as equivalent to departments for any or all of the purposes described in Chapter 5. A school or college shall be created or discontinued, or the name of an existing school or college changed, by the chancellor after consultation with the University Committee, subject to the approval of the Board of Regents. Creation of a school or college with academic programs at the post-baccalaureate graduate or professional level is also subject to the approval of the legislature. Recommendations concerning these matters shall be reported to the faculties of the schools or colleges directly affected and to the senate for discussion.
