NOTE: Title IV institutions are those with a written agreement with the U.S. Department of Education that allows the institution to participate in any of the Title IV federal student financial assistance programs. United States includes the 50 states and the District of Columbia. The U.S. Naval Academy, the U.S. Military Academy, the U.S. Coast Guard Academy, and the U.S. Air Force Academy are not Title IV eligible but are included in the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS) universe because they are federally funded and open to the public; they are included in this table. The U.S. Merchant Marine Academy is Title IV eligible and is also included in this table. Institutions are classified as 4-year or 2-year based on the highest level of award offered in the collection year (2022–23). Awards displayed in this table were conferred during the 12-month period July 1, 2021 to June 30, 2022. No data from less-than-2-year institutions are included in this table because they were non-degree-granting in the collection year. Because of changes to institutional characteristics between the reference year (2021–22) and collection year (2022–23), institutions may report awards that are no longer consistent with their current levels of offering (e.g., two-year institutions in the collection year may report awarding bachelor’s degrees in the reference year). Percentages in the columns of this table use the corresponding count in the appropriate total row of each section as the denominator. Awards to individuals who self-identify with more than one race are included in the Two or more races category. Awards to individuals who are in the United States on a visa or temporary basis, and who are not authorized to remain indefinitely, are included in the U.S. Nonresident category regardless of race or ethnicity. Awards conferred to individuals of Hispanic or Latino ethnicity are included in the Hispanic or Latino category regardless of race and are not included in the race categories. The total number of students may not sum to the total number of awards since students can receive more than one award at the same time. Detail may not sum to totals because of rounding and because students may complete awards at multiple award levels. Definitions for terms used in this table may be found in the IPEDS online glossary located at The glossary is primarily focused on terms used in the current IPEDS collection and may not reflect the definitions in effect when the data in this table were collected.
