Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS) Reports

IPEDS is a system of interrelated surveys conducted annually by the U.S. Department of Education’s National Center for Education Statistics (NCES). IPEDS gathers information from every college, university, and technical and vocational institution that participates in the federal student financial aid programs.

IPEDS includes basic data needed to describe and analyze trends in postsecondary education in the United States, in terms of students enrolled, staff employed, dollars expended, financial aid dispersed, and degrees earned.

IPEDS also provides annual data feedback reports on WSU and selected peers:
