Governance, administration and access to official data
Data Freeze Dates
Data are extracted directly from UA administrative information systems at specific dates during the year and stored in UA’s Decision Support Database, RPTP.DSDMGR, in order to meet university reporting requirements and ensure consistency in reports.
Semester Freeze Dates
On these dates, a “snapshot” of student data is taken corresponding to the beginning (open) or end (close) of an academic term. The data freezes occur approximately four weeks after the beginning or end of the term.
Annual Freeze Dates
Human resource data is a “snapshot” of data collected on October 1st of each year. All student financial aid data is frozen and collected on September 30th of each year for the prior aid year.
