Banner Population Selection -- SWRPLST (Demographic List w. Credit Hrs.)

The SWRPLST demographic report, part of the Population Selection process, enables the user to create a list of student names, G numbers, addresses, phone numbers, majors at time of enrollment, and demographic information based on a population selection the user has previously created.

If you select "D" for Parameter 04, the report also includes each student's total credit hours earned. A download friendly version of the report is also created.
