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.

Access must be granted by calendar owner


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.
