Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS)

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. The Higher Education Act of 1965, as amended, requires that institutions that participate in federal student aid programs report data on enrollments, program completions, graduation rates, faculty and staff, finances, institutional prices, and student financial aid. These data are made available to students and parents through the College Navigator college search Web site and to researchers and others through the IPEDS Data Center.

IPEDS currently consists of the following [survey] components: Institutional Characteristics; 12-Month Enrollment; Completions; Human Resources Composed of Employees by Assigned Position, Fall Staff, and Salaries; Fall Enrollment; Graduation Rates; Finance; and Student Financial Aid.
