# Rounds to zero.
1 Essentially self-supporting operations of institutions that furnish a service to students, faculty, or staff, such as residence halls and food services.
2 Excludes tuition, fee, and auxiliary enterprise allowances and agency transactions, such as student awards made from contributed funds or grant funds. These exclusions account for the majority of total student grants.
3 Institutions that award at least 20 research/scholarship doctor’s degrees per year, but did not have high levels of research activity.
4 Institutions that award at least 50 master’s and fewer than 20 doctor’s degrees per year.
5 Institutions that primarily emphasize undergraduate education. In addition to institutions that primarily award bachelor’s degrees, also includes institutions classified as 4-year in the IPEDS system, but classified as 2-year baccalaureate/associate’s colleges in the Carnegie Classification system because they primarily award associate’s degrees.
6 Four-year institutions that award degrees primarily in single fields of study, such as medicine, business, fine arts, theology, and engineering.
7 High transfer institutions award less than 30 percent of their awards in career and technical programs. Mixed transfer/career and technical institutions award 30 to 49 percent of their awards in career and technical programs.
8 High career and technical institutions award 50 percent or more of their awards in career and technical programs.
NOTE: Degree-granting institutions grant associate’s or higher degrees and participate in Title IV federal financial aid programs. Further information on the Carnegie 2015 classification system used in this table may be obtained from http://carnegieclassifications.iu.edu/. Data in this table pertain to institutions’ fiscal years that end in the academic year noted. Detail may not sum to totals because of rounding.
