IPEDS Submissions and Comparisons:

IPEDS is the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System of the US Department of Education. IPEDS reporting is required of all institutions. See the IPEDS site for an overview, and the AIR IPEDS site. The bold links on this page lead to information on individual surveys (select "IPEDS Resources," then click on "the Archived Survey Library" under "Survey Instrument Archive.")

Complete background on IPEDS surveys, statutory requirements, and survey items, published by NPEC, 2011. (PDF)

CU-Boulder’s IPEDS ID number is 126614.

Implementing IPEDS rules for collection, storage, and reporting of race/ethnicity: March '09 (Word)

The IPEDS Data Feedback Report (DFR) combines data from several IPEDS surveys to compare one institution to peers, here CU-Boulder to other AAU public US institutions. The report changes somewhat each year, covering enrollment, degrees, tuition and fees, graduation rates, employees, and finances. The report labeled "2006" was issued Sept 2006 and incorporates data submitted in 2005-2006, which refer to activity in fiscal year (FY) 2005 and in fall 2005 (which is in FY2006).  

You can generate IPEDS Data Feedback Reports for other institutions from the IPEDS site by selecting "Evaluate Data and Statistics" and then "Executive Peer Tool."

We list our AAU public peers and list IPEDS "unit ID’s" for all AAU US publics, including CU-Boulder, in a text file.
