Welcome to REX

REX is the reporting and decision support environment for UMBC’s data warehouse.  The UMBC data warehouse integrates administrative data from systems throughout UMBC.  REX allows authorized faculty, staff, and institutional researchers to report and analyze administrative University data.  REX provides a few ways for reporting data from the data warehouse.

Guided Reports

Pre-written reports which allow authorized users to change options to suit their needs.

Advanced users can explore the data warehouse and create their own reports. This requires additional training and authorization, and is not intended for the casual user.

UMBC complies with the Federal Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). In general, FERPA serves to protect the privacy of student education records. Specifically, FERPA limits the release of any information from a student’s education record without prior written consent from the student. FERPA allows for the disclosure of those records, without consent, to school officials with legitimate educational interests.
