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 four U.S. service academies that are not Title IV eligible are included in the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS) universe because they are federally funded and open to the public and are included in this table. Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) includes the branches of the Army, Navy and Air Force. Percentages in the rows of this table use the corresponding count in the "All institutions" row as the denominator. Data are not imputed. The item response rates for all cells in this table are 100 percent. Detail within columns does not sum to totals because institutions may offer more than one special learning opportunity to students. Definitions for terms used in this table may be found in the collection year’s archived downloadable glossary located at
