Reporting Services

Most routine requests for standard demographic and academic information on subsets of the student population may be satisfied by sending an Email with the particulars of your request to brockop@brockport.edu in the LITS Applications Systems and Networking (ASN) Operations Center.

If the Operations Center is not able to satisfy your request, it will be escalated to the programming group for analysis and assignment. While ASN reserves a percentage of its programming resources for new report creation, requests requiring a significant commitment of those resources will be subject to project prioritization and may be delayed in delivery.

Whenever possible, a solution will be delivered which will allow you to produce the report on your own in the future. An investment in learning about the Brockport data warehouse and Hyperion Performance Suite may save you time down the road and allow you to query administrative data on your own.

We also support systems such as:
