Survey Component Overview

The IPEDS Completions (C) survey collects data on postsecondary awards ranging from postsecondary certificates of less than 1 year to doctor's degrees. Data collected include degree completions by level and other formal awards by length of program, by race/ethnicity and gender of recipient, and by program as described by 6-digit CIP (Classification of Instructional Programs) codes. Data are collected for both first and second major fields of study. Also, the Completions component now collects the number of completers by award level.
