Issue Date defaults for Visa/Permit data entry

Due to a recent software update, you cannot enter or update Visa/Permit data records with a blank Issue Date. Starting October 10, a workaround will default the Issue Date field to 01/01/1900 until this issue is resolved.
-- For HR I-9 data entry, overwrite this default according to normal procedures.
-- All other offices that normally leave this field blank should accept the default
value.

Visiting Scholars and PGMED Removed from Third Week Count Data Set

We are writing to describe a change in the categories of students that are being counted in our official enrollment reports effective with the Fall 2010 term. These changes are being made so that we are compliant with federal IPEDS (Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System) reporting requirements.

The Third Week Count Data Set (SA05) beginning with Fall 2010 term will no longer include data for individuals in the academic programs for Post-Graduate Medicine or Visiting Scholars. Prior terms will contain these individuals to reflect how they have previously been counted. If you are producing comparative reports presenting trend data, we strongly recommend that you show these two categories as “excluded enrollments” so that you can easily determine increases and decreases over time.

When the Third Week Count Data Set was loaded on the morning of September 28 Post-Graduate Medicine and Visiting Scholar programs were mistakenly included. We subsequently removed these rows from the dataset on September 30. We apologize for any problems caused by this adjustment.

Registrar reports on the web (http://ro.umich.edu/enrollment/) for terms prior to Fall 2010 will reflect enrollment counts at the point they were created. This means that you should be careful in making comparisons based on these static reports.

The Student Records Data Set (SA03) will continue to include data for individuals in the academic programs for Post-Graduate Medicine and Visiting Scholars until a time when they can be permanently phased out.
