Registration and Grade Data

The Registration Table in the Student Information System Database (SISDB) contains a laundry list of information about students registered for courses in Arkansas institutions of higher education. Student data is provided by 4-year public institutions and 2-year public institutions only. This list of information includes data such as the student and the course, including course number, in which the student is registered. In addition, a separate end-of-term report is provided by the Arkansas public institutions which include final grade information for the registered courses.

The below table illustrates that, on average, students attending public 4-year colleges register for more courses than students in public 2-year colleges.
