Request Data

NDSU complies with North Dakota open records and national student data privacy (FERPA) laws, and only releases information defined as "directory" under FERPA to outside third-party requesters (see Student Data Privacy).

Several reports are available on the Institutional Research and Analysis web site. Please check to see if any of the publicly available reports will meet your needs prior to submitting a data request.

Internal (University Only) Data Requests

Only university officials or others with a legitimate educational interest as defined by FERPA are authorized to receive education records that contain non-directory personally-identifiable information. Official status and legitimate interest are determined prior to fulfilling the data request. See information and guidelines on re-disclosure and destruction/disposal or education records.

Internal Request Form*(may require Microsoft 365 login with NDUS credentials)

External (Third-Party) Data Requests

Third parties are restricted to directory information only, as defined by federal, state, and institutional policies (see Student Privacy Policy).
