Prior Year Revision (PYR) System is Now Open

The Prior Year Revision (PYR) System is now available to keyholders for purposes of revising data submitted during the 2012-13 data collection year, and is located at: Survey components currently available for revision include Institutional Characteristics (Part B Admissions data and Part C), Completions, and 12-Month Enrollment. These components will be available for revision through October 16, 2013. Winter and Spring Survey components from 2012-13 will be available for revision beginning December 4 and will remain open concurrently with the survey components in the 2013-14 data collection system.

Reminder: IPEDS Will “Thank You” for Your Early Response

Do you know about the early response “thank you” email? Any institution which completes all required surveys three weeks prior to a collection deadline will have an email sent to the institution’s Chief Executive, thanking them for their early IPEDS response, and recognizing their Keyholder by name. While NCES realizes that it is not always within the Keyholder’s control to complete the surveys this early, we do want to provide a word of gratitude to you and your Chief Executive when it is possible to do so. For the Fall 2013 collection, September 25, 2013 is the date by which all fall components must be submitted in order to be eligible for this “Thank You” email.
