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 Winter 2012-13 collection, January 16, 2013 is the date by which SFA must be submitted in order to be eligible for this “Thank You” email.
