IPEDS (Institution/Peer Comparisons)

The Office of Policy and Research coordinates submission of all public higher education institutions in Connecticut to the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS) at the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES). Submission of a wide range of data to the federal government is a requirement for participation in federal student aid programs under Title IV of the Higher Education Opportunity Act.

IPEDS Data Feedback Reports

NCES issues these reports in order to provide institutions a context for examining data submitted to IPEDS. Reports are intended to be useful to institutional executives; in addition use of these data may
help improve data quality and comparability.
