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.
Unduplicated head count: Unduplicated head count of students enrolled over a 12-month period for both undergraduate and graduate levels. These enrollment data are particularly valuable for institutions that use non-traditional calendar systems and offer short-term programs. Because this enrollment measure encompasses an entire year, it provides a more complete picture of the number of students these schools serve.
Instructional activity: Instructional activity measured in total credit and/or contact hours delivered by institutions during a 12-month period. The credit hour and contact hour activity data are used to derive 12-month full-time equivalent (FTE) enrollments for both undergraduate and graduate levels. The graduate level does not include credit hours for doctoral professional practice students.
