IPEDS Completions Survey (fr_IpedsCompletions)


Report all degrees and other formal awards conferred by your institution between July 1, 2007, and June 30, 2008. Award levels range from postsecondary certificates of less than one year to doctor's degrees. Awards/degrees earned but not yet conferred should be reported in next year's survey. If an individual received two degrees at different levels (e.g., a bachelor's degree at the end of the summer session and a master's degree at the end of the academic year), report each degree in its appropriate classification. Include completions in occupational/vocational programs as well as academic programs.
