Institutional Characteristics 2011-12

Overview
Institutional Characteristics Overview
  Welcome to the Institutional Characteristics (IC) survey. This survey collects important information about your institution's mission, admissions, students services, and student charges.

Much of the data reported on IC appear on College Navigator, a college search service for students. Please report data correctly, as College Navigator is only updated one time after IC data have been reviewed, so errors may stay on the website for a full year.

Additionally, the cost (price) of attendance data are used to calculate the net price of attendance in the Student Financial Aid survey. This has important implications for what students see about your institution, and also for the College Affordability and Transparency lists.

Remember, it is the responsibility of the keyholder to provide NCES with accurate data about the institution. Please never hesitate to call the IPEDS Help Desk and ask for help to make sure that you are reporting correctly!
 
  Changes to Institutional Characteristics:
  • The systems question is now part of the IC Header.
  • There is a new question that asks whether all of the programs at your institution are offered completely via distance education.
  • !! Cost (price) of attendance data for program reporters will be collected for the length of the program (tuition and fees, books and supplies) or for 4 weeks (room and board, other expenses). This is to better align IC cost of attendance with SFA data for the net price calculation. Based on the data entered, program cost of attendance and academic year cost of attendance will be calculated. Please review all of these values very carefully
 
     
  Reviews of the IC survey data indicate a number of places where many people make errors. Please review the common errors listed below to ensure your institution does not make any reporting errors which may affect your institution's appearance to students and others.  
 
  • Do not try to outsmart fatal errors. In some cases, this provides false information to students or may cause an institution to appear on the College Affordability and Transparency lists. Fatal errors are there for a reason - contact the Help Desk at 877.225.2568 and they will happily help you to figure out what you are doing incorrectly, or provide an override if necessary.      
  • Admissions data are for first-time students only.      
  • Many institutions are open admission but indicate that they are not. If your institution only requires a GED or other high school equivalent and/or an ability to benefit test, and admits almost all students that apply, your institution is open admission.
 
 
  • If your institution makes numerous exceptions to an on-campus housing requirement, you should not indicate that you require students to live on campus. This leads to inconsistent and problematic reporting on the Student Financial Aid survey.
  • Academic year reporters need to report tuition, fees, and living expenses for the entire academic year for which they are reporting. In order to be consistent with other institutions in IPEDS, please use the IPEDS definition of an academic year.

Part B - Admissions and Estimated Enrollment
1. Does your institution have an open admission policy for all or most entering first-time degree/certificate-seeking undergraduate-level students?
If the only requirement for admission is a high school diploma or GED/other equivalent, your institution is still considered open admission. Institutions that require only an Ability to Benefit or similar test beyond the diploma/equivalent, and only reject a very small number of students based on the test, are also considered open admission.
If your institution does not have an open admission policy, you will be expected to answer additional questions (B2, B3, and B4) regarding your admissions procedures and admissions yield.
       Yes
     No
