Data Warehouse Access and Training

Data Warehouse Access and Training Intro Text

The NC College System Data Warehouse is a repository for System Office data collection that is accessible via the internet to registered users. College personnel across the state can access their college’s data as well as a state level set of standard reports without having to learn complicated computer languages or complex software. Users may create, save, send, and print detailed reports. Our goal is to provide a simple and effective means for college and state government personnel to use data in measuring performance and doing business.
