Ø No institutions met the criteria to be included in this cell. There are no institutions in the Carnegie classification.

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. Carnegie classification is based on the Carnegie Foundation’s Basic Classification, which is an update of the traditional classification framework developed by the Carnegie Commission on Higher Education in 1970 to support its research program and published in 1973 for use by other researchers (see; link retrieved September 30, 2022). Carnegie classifications do not always contain institutions of the same level. The adjusted cohort is the revised cohort minus any allowable exclusions. The revised cohort is the number of students entering the institution as degree- or certificate-seeking undergraduates in the reference year. Allowable exclusions include those students who died or were totally and permanently disabled; students who left school to serve in the armed forces (or were called up to active duty); those who left to serve with a foreign aid service of the federal government, such as the Peace Corps; and those who left to serve on official church missions. An award is defined as an undergraduate degree or undergraduate certificate conferred by the institution. The status of each student in the Outcome Measures 2012–2013 entering cohort is reported as of August 31, 2020. Definitions for terms used in this table may be found in the collection year’s archived downloadable glossary located at
