Institutional Research and Data Management adheres strictly to Federal and State reporting guidelines.  Therefore, it should be noted that data reports and references produced by IR&DM could be based upon slightly differing sets of data definitions.  Some data representations may differ from reports produced within this department and by other university entities.  Where possible, the definitions have been included.  Please contact IR&DM with any questions.


  • DASTAT (Daily Statistics) Report Guide (pdf)
    The DASTAT (Daily Statistics) Report provides daily enrollment and semester credit hour information from the beginning of the term through the official census day of that term. Enrollment and semester credit hour data are available by major, department, college and school. Demographic data are available for enrollment. The report can be viewed on the Institutional Effectiveness & Research SharePoint site (login required).
  • Enrollment Comparisons.  These tables contain five years of comparative data including classification and level, full/part-time status, residence, campus/center (Denton, Dallas, and Houston), ethnicity, gender, age and top five counties, and can now be found in the Enrollment Section of the Fact Book starting at page B7.
  • Majors Lists
    Use to access a list of students enrolled as of Census Day for each semester.  These reports are used for cohorts for state and federal reports and are listed by semester for each academic year.  Must have access to SharePoint to view reports.


The Common Data Set (CDS) represents a joint effort by The College Board, Peterson's, U.S. News & World Report, and Wintergreen/Orchard House to standardize data definitions and data elements commonly used in surveys of higher education institutions. The CDS currently includes sections profiling institutions' general information, enrollment and persistence, freshman admission, transfer admission, academic offerings and policies, student life, expenses, and financial aid. To better understand the data that is being shown, please reference the Common Data Set Definitions that are listed at the end of each file.
