The country-specific functions for the United States enable you to fulfill the legal requirements for student reporting in the US. You can prepare, execute, and output reports required for submission to the authorities. IPEDS Reporting


In the United States, universities are required to report various student data to the authorities. NCES (National Center for Education Statistics) uses the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS) to collect this data from post-secondary institutions. IPEDS consists of various components to fulfill the different reporting requirements. Student Lifecycle Management currently supports three of these components and comes with reports that you can use to compile the data required.

Features The Student Lifecycle Management IPEDS Reporting solution covers the following three reports:

– Reports the number and composition of students who complete a post- secondary education program. Degree completions are reported by level, length of program, race/ethnicity, gender, and CIP code.

– Reports the number and composition of students who are currently enrolled. Full-time and part-time student enrollments are reported by level, race/ethnicity, and gender.

– Reports the number and composition of students who graduate or transfer out. Graduation rates and transfer rates are reported for the cohort (full-time, first-time, degree/certificate-seeking undergraduate students in a specific year) by race/ethnicity and gender. Data on students receiving athletically-related financial aid is also collected.
