Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System
Central Arizona College submits data to the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS) three times each year, in fall, winter, and spring. The data include enrollments, completions, graduation rates, finances, financial aid, and human resources.
These data and those of other higher education institutions in the US are publically available on their Web site in a series of formats for researchers, educators, parents and students. For example, the College Navigator may be used by families for college or university selection while the Peer Analysis System allows researchers to compare an institution to a group of peer institutions.
In addition, IPEDS provides a Data Feedback Report each year to member institutions based on data that we submit in comparison to a group of peer colleges. These reports are listed below:
