The Graduate School provides a number of regularly scheduled reports helpful for managing graduate student enrollment and Graduate Assistants (e.g., stipend level and hire eligibility, level increases), which are delivered via email. These also include:
- Grad Milestones Report
- This monthly report is informational and no action is necessary, but it may be helpful to departments in tracking student progress. The report captures both the milestones currently on a student’s account (e.g., General Exam, Related Area Requirement), as well as total credits earned and cumulative GPA for all active grads in the program.
- Please note, the General Exam and Dissertation Proposal are separate milestones (the full policy can be found in The Graduate Catalog). In instances where a program considers the successful defense of the dissertation proposal to act as an oral General Exam, the Report on the General Exam form, in addition to the Dissertation Proposal form, must be submitted to Degree Audit. Failure to submit both forms can result in degree auditing delays, impact dissertation fellowship eligibility, and delay eligibility for an increase to the Level 3 stipend if the doctoral student is also a Graduate Assistant.
- This guide may help departments interpret the report’s data.
- Grad Enrollment by Student Report
- This monthly report is informational and no action is necessary, but it may be helpful to departments in tracking which students have not yet registered for the upcoming semester. Graduate students who are not enrolled by the tenth day of the semester are automatically discontinued from their program.
The University provides faculty and staff access to several online databases and the information compiled can assist departments in successfully tracking and managing their current students’ progress as well as accessing historical data about their program and graduates. Please keep FERPA guidelines in mind when accessing or using information about your grads.

Grad Slate CRM System
The Graduate School’s online application and CRM system collects data throughout the recruitment and admissions cycle. At several points during the admissions process including and after application submission, much of this data is imported into Student Administration/PeopleSoft/SIS as the system of record and for official reporting.
The GradSlate system also provides resources for pulling applicant and inquiry data. Queries are available for extracting a list of records by status, and the Reports show aggregate data. You may want to use Queries and Reports for: tracking trends; taking action on active applications; gathering prospect and inquiry data; gathering data on unsubmitted applications; and gathering data collected during the application process and which does not exist in Peoplesoft.
Student Admin is the data repository and system of record for student information, including those enrolled in graduate programs. Modules within Student Admin record students’ academic, financial, and personal information. There are step-by-step guides for accessing and navigating the system available. Administrative access to Student Admin must be requested.
