Data are from the IPEDS Completions survey corresponding to degree conferrals from July 1, 2013 through June 30, 2014, as well as from the 2014 Institutional Characteristics and Fall Enrollments surveys. These were the most recent data available for all institutions as of 2015.
Level of Institution
Institutions were identified as two- or four-year based on a combination of IPEDS Completions and Institutional Characteristics data (institutional level). If an institution awarded no bachelor's or higher-level degrees and was designated within institutional characteristics as at the two-year level, it was included among two-year institutions.
Institutions were identified as exclusively undergraduate, combined undergraduate and graduate, or exclusively graduate based on the Fall 2014 enrollment data. For institutions with both undergraduate and graduate enrollments, the percentage of graduate was calculated as full-time equivalent (FTE) graduate students as a proportion of FTE degree-seeking undergraduate and graduate. FTE was calculated as full-time headcount plus one-third part-time headcount.
