Notification concerning Transfer University
Recently, members of the BI Team and SLCM Team have had quite a few discussions concerning the transfer university column. This field can be found on both the Detail Enrollment report, and the Students and Courses Detail report. Our consensus has been that what this field represents on the reports is not clear and the field should be removed from the reports.
The transfer university can mean either the transfer university for first time transfers or the university where the student has transferred credits over the summer. In addition, a user may want just one or all transfer universities for a student. For now, it is best for the BI Team to fulfill requests which include transfer university until we can provide a better self service option.
If you have any concerns, please let us know as soon as possible at BI-Requests@email.uky.edu. Otherwise, transfer university will be removed from the reports by February 10, 2012.
