Studies, Reports and data
Data Access and Management Policy
The State Regents establish the principles governing access to and the dissemination of information gathered and maintained through the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education's Unitary Data System (UDS). UDS has been in place since 1977. Each semester, approximately 75 data elements are gathered for each student (a person who enrolled, had a class/grade action and paid fees) in Oklahoma higher education.
There are 30 data-reporting entities, institutions and branch campuses in the Oklahoma State System for Higher Education. Some of the private institutions do not participate in UDS, so grand totals including private institutions are not complete. Oklahoma has 25 public higher education institutions, 20 branch campuses and five learning centers. In addition, there are 12 private higher education institutions that are regionally accredited.
The Education Pipeline
"The Education Pipeline" is a representation of the flow of students in the Oklahoma State System of Higher Education from high school to college admission, through first-year benchmarks and on to graduation and employment.
