Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS)

IPEDS is the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System, a system of interconnected reports collected annually by the US Department of Education National Center for Education Statistics (NCES). The Higher Education Act of 1965, as amended, requires institutions of higher education 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. For more information about IPEDS, please visit their website. NCES also uses IPEDS data to produce our SUNY Cortland Profile, at their College Navigator page.

Below is a list of IPEDS reports for the corresponding academic year.







Below, reports are listed in sections by report type, with multiple years in each section. A brief description of the report is also provided.

Outcome Measures

    This report, first gathered in the 2015-16 reporting year, gathers data on undergraduates related to award and enrollment, split in a variety of ways. Four cohorts from the same time period are differentiated by entry status (first-time vs. non-first time) and time status (full-time vs. part-time), three status points (four-years, six-years, and eight-years after entry). Beginning with the 2017-18 academic year, groups were further split between Pell Grant recipients and Non-Pell Grant recipients.
