Online Data Entry Instructions

Section Definition

All of the FAEIS surveys ( enrollment, degrees awarded, transfer, placement, faculty) can be completed online using our system’s interface. The surveys do not have to be completed in one session. You can save your work and return to any survey at any time. To complete the surveys online:

  1. Go to the FAEIS homepage and login.
  2. Go to the “Surveys” tab.
  3. From the “College/Department” dropdown menu, pick a college or department to work in.
  4. From the dropdown menu, select which survey form you will complete.
  5. To complete the survey for a specific instructional program, click on the green “Edit” button associated with the instructional program.
  6. Enter the headcounts for the specified attributes in the form. This application auto-saves. You may stop at any point and resume your work later.
  7. Save and finish the form when you are finished. Your data will not be used in reports until it is marked finished.
  8. Click on either “Next Survey” or “Back to Surveys” to provide headcounts for a different program
  9. Repeat as needed until you have provided data for all programs you have access to. There is a unit completion progress meter as well as an institutional progress meter at the top of the Surveys screen. All survey users have the ability to report on all surveys at their institution. Institutional administrators are responsible for overseeing delegation of reporting effort across survey users.
