WHO IS GRANTED ACCESS?

  • Access is granted to active (current & future) faculty, staff, and administration by a login with ECom username and password.

WHEN IS THE DATA UPDATED?

  • Download data for the current term is updated weekly (more often during the first 10 days of the fall and spring terms) - usually by 7am on Monday morning.
  • Future terms are updated approximately once per week. The date and time last updated can be displayed after clicking on "Go."
  • The official up-to-date roster is available through the RSTR screen on WIUP at http://mvs.wiu.edu

HOW DO I SAVE THE DATA?

  • The download data is saved with an assigned descriptive file name. To view or import the downloaded data, you may need to save or rename the files with a ".txt" extension.
  • If data is saved for spreadsheet or database use, import the file into your software using a "tab delimited" format.
  • Search Western's Knowledgebase for details on how to import data into Excel.

WHAT DATA IS AVAILABLE?

  • The drop-down menus for rosters, majors, and minors include the total number of students in parentheses. If there are no students enrolled, then the roster, major or minor name will not appear in the selection list.
  • Major and minor abbreviations are available by using these tables: Major Abbreviations and Minor Abbreviations
  • Brief field descriptions are included below:
