Student Data

Most of the data needed on a daily basis is already available to the LSU community through self-service resources. If you are in need of data not available on LSU public sites you may submit an ad hoc data request by completing the form below.

Data will only be released in accordance with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) and applicable LSU policies, and not all requests will meet these criteria. As a business practice, the Office of the University Registrar requires all requests for large data sets, student level data sets, and data sets for retention related projects, to include a narrative that answers the following questions:

  • Scope
  • Objectives
  • Desired Outcomes
  • Actionable Items

The narrative should be entered in the "Purpose" section on this form.

This form is not for public records requests. For information on public records requests, please visit the LSU General Counsel's website

If you are requesting summary-level (aggregate) data, you must fill in the Office of Data and Strategic Analytics Request Form instead. If you are requesting individual-level data, please continue with this form.
