Based on the 2023 United States Supreme Court decision, race/ethnicity data collected on the undergraduate admissions application will not be loaded into the banner system until the first day of classes and should not be shared/viewed prior to that time without an approved exception. Exceptions can be granted for data related to race/ethnicity to be shared with individuals, preferably outside of the admissions firewall (those who do not participate in making admission decisions), by means of an approved request.
Requests will be reviewed by the Director of Undergraduate Admissions and a recommendation will be made to the Associate Provost for Enrollment Management for a final decision. Legal consultation may also be required.
You can typically expect a response in 3 working days. During periods of increased workload, response times could be longer.
Note that historical data related to race/ethnicity does not require an exception through this process. Exceptions are only necessary for prospective student data and admitted student data for the current admissions cycle.
