What is IPEDS?

The Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS) 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 career-technical institution that participates in federal student financial aid programs. Institutions are required to report data on enrollments, program completions, graduation rates, faculty and staff, finances, institutional prices, and student financial aid.

IPEDS data is available to students, parents, and researchers on the College Navigator, and the IPEDS Data Center.
