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. Institutional category is derived using the level of offerings reported on the Institutional Characteristics component of the IPEDS and the number and level of awards reported in the Completions component of IPEDS. Primarily baccalaureate refers to institutions where the total number of degrees/certificates awarded at or above the bachelor's level is more than 50 percent of the total number of degrees/certificates awarded. Associate’s and certificates refers to institutions with an associate’s degree as the only degree offering that may also offer postsecondary certificates of any level. Percentages in the columns of this table use the count in the appropriate "Adjusted cohort" column of each section as the denominator. Definitions for terms used in this table may be found in the collection year’s archived downloadable glossary located at
