Institutional Reports

Numerous reports are generated from the databases the Office of Enrollment Management administers. The Office of Enrollment Management is in the process of making these and other reports available to faculty, staff, and administrators and the academic community at large for use in a variety of activities, such as preparation for program review, enrollment trend analysis, and grant writing.

The reports have been divided into two categories: reports generated from files created for submission to the South Carolina Commission on Higher Education and reports generated from the "live" databases. The difference between the two categories is that SCCHE data files are frozen in March, July, and October. "Live" data may change day to day - even hour to hour.

The links below provide access to the appropriate report files. For reports needed on a recurring basis but not found here, a data request should be placed with the Director of University Reporting by e-mail at sulkowsk@musc.edu or telephone 843-876-7826.

University Standard for Reporting Race and Ethnicity of Students

Introduction

The Medical University of South Carolina has developed a University Standard for reporting race and ethnicity of students to ensure quality data is being collected and reported in a reliable and consistent manner.

Race and Ethnicity

The DoE mandated that race and ethnicity information be collected by schools in a new format. Notably, that Hispanic ethnicity was to be treated as a separate question apart from racial declaration, and that students should be allowed to identify with multiple races.

Pre-2008 MUSC/DoE data standard required students to identify with one and only one race and ethnic category:

  • American Indian or Alaskan Native
  • Asian or Pacific Islander
  • Black, not Hispanic
  • Hispanic
  • White, not Hispanic
  • Undeclared

Post-2008 MUSC/DoE data standard requires students to identify race and ethnicity separately, with one or more races permitted:

  • Ethnicity - student identifies with one and only one ethnic category
    • Hispanic or Latino
    • Not Hispanic or Latino
  • Race - student identifies with one or more race categories
    • American Indian or Alaskan Native
    • Asian (Asian Indian, Filipino, Japanese, Chinese, SE Asian Non Vietnamese, Pakistani, Korean, Vietnamese)
    • Black or African American
    • Native Hawaiian or Other Pacific Islander (Native Hawaiian, Samoan, Guamanian/Chamorro)
    • White
    • Undeclared (Individual did not identify with a racial category)

Non-MUSC Entity Specific Standard

This method will be used for external agencies and associations that have their own specific definitions of race and ethnicity. When reporting to these external bodies, data is organized and reported using the definitions and categories as the agency or association has dictated.

Examples of such agencies and associations are the SC Commission on Higher Education (CHE), Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), The Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS), American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy (AACP), Association of Schools of Allied Health Professions (ASAHP), and Physician Assistant National Certifying Exam (PANCE), etc.
