Description
  • Abstract

    The Fall Enrollment survey is conducted annually by the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) as part of the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS). The survey collects data that describe the status of student participation in various types of postsecondary institutions. The data are collected by sex for six racial/ethnic categories as defined by the Office for Civil Rights (OCR). There are two parts included in this survey. Part A, Enrollment Summary by Racial/Ethnic Status, provides enrollment data by race/ethnicity and sex and by level and year of study of the student. Part C, Clarifying Questions, supplies information on students enrolled in remedial courses, extension divisions, and branches of schools, as well as numbers of transfer students from in-state, out of state, and other countries.
