Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System


IPEDS is the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System. It is a system of interrelated surveys conducted annually by the U.S. Department’s National Center for Education Statistics (NCES). IPEDS gathers information from every college, university, and technical and vocational institution that participates in the federal student financial aid programs. IPEDS provides basic data needed to describe — and analyze trends in — postsecondary education in the United States, in terms of the numbers of students enrolled, staff employed, dollars expended, and degrees earned. Congress, federal agencies, state governments, education providers, professional associations, private businesses, media, students and parents, and others rely on IPEDS data for this basic information.  IPEDS data are used at the federal and state level for policy analysis and development and at the institutional level for benchmarking and peer analysis. Additional information about IPEDS can be found on their website at: http://nces.ed.gov/ipeds/ Beginning with the Fall 2010 collection, each institution within the USF System submits IPEDS surveys independently.

IPEDS data collections occur in three periods each year.
Fall collection surveys include:
   • Institutional Characteristics,
   • Completions, and
   • 12-month Enrollment.

Winter collection includes:
   • Human Resources, and
   • Student Financial Aid

Spring collection includes:
   • Fall Enrollment,
   • Finance, and
   • Graduation Rates.
