Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System

The Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS) is the core postsecondary education data collection program established by the National Center for Education Statistics. It is a single, comprehensive system that encompasses all identified institutions whose primary purpose is to provide postsecondary education.

IPEDS consists of institution-level data from approximately 9,900 institutions on the following components of higher education:

  • Institutional Characteristics
  • Fall Enrollment
  • Completions
  • Graduation Rate
  • Salaries, Tenure, and Fringe Benefits of Full-time Instructional Faculty
  • Financial Statistics
  • Fall Staff
  • Mount Holyoke College supplies institutional data annually to the IPEDS database.

Data Feedback Reports are available with comparisons to a group of peer institutions.  They are updated each March with the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS) data submitted during the data collection cycle from the prior year.
