  • Abstract

    This file was designed to enable users to understand the relationships between the Classification of Instructional Programs (CIP) and the Higher Education General Information Survey (HEGIS) taxonomy. The CIP is a taxonomic coding scheme of educational instructional programs that was originally developed by the United States Department of Education's National Center for Education Statistics (NCES). The CIP was intended to establish standard terminology to improve the communication and exchange of information with regard to instructional programs and to standardize record-keeping. Among the intended users of the CIP system, in addition to the federal government, are state governments, local governments, educational institutions, education research organizations, accrediting agencies, professional associations, and individual researchers. The HEGIS series, on the other hand, was designed to provide comprehensive information on various aspects of postsecondary education in the United States and its territories (American Samoa, Guam, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, and the Marshall Islands) and Department of Defense schools outside the United States. Data are available for both public and private two-year and four-year institutions. There are eight components: Earned Degrees/Completions, Employees, Finance, Residence and Migration, Salaries, Fall Enrollment, Institutional Characteristics, and Libraries.
