CRYSTAL REPORTS AND WHAT THEY CAN DO TO HELP YOU The great thing about Crystal Reports is that they are already out there and ready to use. The problem is that most people just don‟t know what kind of information each report provides. Going through each of these reports has been an eye opener as I have come to realize what impressive tools we have been given in the creation of some of these reports. I have listed the folders as they appear in Crystal to give you an idea of where they are located and have copied the short blurb about them, often adding a condensed simplified phrase of what they do, followed by a screen shot which gives you an example of how the information is presented. Some of the information has been covered to protect the privacy of individuals.

Prerequisite Failure after Registration (found in Student-Campus Access folder) This is a brand new Crystal Report that we want everyone to be aware of so they can use this new tool and know the protocol that needs to be followed if used to remove ineligible students from classes.

Problem: Students that are currently taking a prerequisite course can register for the next course during the early part of registration. Because students register before grades are assigned, a student who does not pass the prerequisite course, may no longer be qualified to stay registered in the sequential course.

Solution: Run the crystal report „Prerequisite Failure after Registration‟ after grades have been posted (Thursday after finals). There is a list of each section with the names of those who have not passed the prerequisite courses. Caution: if you overrode any student without the prerequisite, they will also be listed.

Procedure: Each department needs to notify the student that they will be dropped from the course because they do not meet the prerequisites. After notification, please send the list to the registration office at [email protected] Make it clear that these students will be dropped from the course as a „Department Request‟ which will ensure that they receive a full refund, if they have paid tuition. It is to the Department‟s benefit to do this as early as possible so that other qualified students can register in those spaces.


Screenshot of the report This report shows the section, name of student, W#, phone#, and email. **Name, W#, phone#, and email are the columns that have been concealed for this manual.

Sample email for Dept to notify student of removal: Subject: Failure to meet prereq(s); removal from class Dear Student, We have reviewed {Semester} course prerequisites for {Course}. Unfortunately, we are unable to allow you to remain in the course because you do not meet the prerequisites. For a complete list of course prerequisites, please refer to the WSU Catalog. It can be found at Prerequisites are determined by individual departments to help students be prepared for, and succeed, in class. You will be removed from this class by departmental request. This entitles you to a complete refund of the tuition/fees associated with this class, if any. Please be aware this withdrawal may affect your financial aid, scholarship, international student status, etc. Please contact the appropriate departments to understand the impact this may have on you. If you have any questions, please contact our offices or your advisor. Sincerely, {Academic Department} {Location/email/phone}


Sample email from Dept to [email protected] from email only:

Registration, We would like to request the following students be removed at “Departmental Request” for not meeting prerequisites. They have been notified via {email, phone, letter, F2F}. Semester: Class: CRN: Import student’s names and W#’s. Or attach spreadsheet. Thank you for your assistance in this matter. {Dept Sec/Academic Dept}
