What we do
The office of Enrollment Services – Analysis and Reporting (OESAR) provides data, research and analysis to university administrators, college and department leadership, faculty, staff and researchers within the Ohio State community. We also report to state and federal governments, the media and the public. Our research drives university enrollment plans and measures university progress on its journey from excellence to eminence.

Custom requests
Click "Initiate a data request" in the menu bar above to download a data request form. OESAR responds to ad hoc data requests and publishes custom reporting regarding admissions and enrollment data. A minimum of two weeks is required for fulfillment of all requests; more complex data requests may require additional time.

For staff interested in querying student data, contact us regarding resources and training at oesar@osu.edu or 614-688-0256.

Standard reports
  • Each term, OESAR publishes the Official 15th Day Enrollment Report. This report serves as a census of student enrollment and includes breakdowns by a number of academic and demographic categories, including academic program, and counts by gender and ethnicity. These census reports support a number of trend reports available on the site.
  • The New First Year Student Profile provides a quick overview of recent incoming classes by highlighting characteristics such as ACT and SAT score averages, high school graduating class rank, and residency and minority student counts.
  • On this site you will find links to other published profiles and summaries. The Admissions Comparison and Summary Report is the university’s only all term, all student admissions report. The Course Distribution by Academic Program Report summarizes enrollment for each term by course subject and catalog number.
