1 Includes independent operations.
2 Includes contributions from affiliated entities.
3 Research universities with a very high level of research activity.
4 Research universities with a high level of research activity.
5 Includes institutions that award at least 20 doctor's degrees per year, but did not have high levels of research activity.
6 Master's institutions award at least 50 master's degrees per year.
7 Baccalaureate institutions primarily emphasize undergraduate education. Also includes institutions classified as 4-year under the IPEDS system, which had been classified as 2-year in the Carnegie classification system because they primarily award associate's degrees.
8 Special-focus 4-year institutions award degrees primarily in single fields of study, such as medicine, business, fine arts, theology, and engineering.
9 Tribally controlled colleges are located on reservations and are members of the American Indian Higher Education Consortium.
NOTE: Relative levels of research activity for research universities were determined by an analysis of research and development expenditures, science and engineering research staffing, and doctoral degrees conferred, by field. Further information on the Carnegie 2005 classification system used in this table may be obtained from http://classifications.carnegiefoundation.org/resources/. Degree-granting institutions grant associate’s or higher degrees and participate in Title IV federal financial aid programs. Detail may not sum to totals because of rounding.
