IPEDS is the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System. It is a system of interrelated surveys conducted annually by the U.S. Department’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 and provides a data feedback report to the institutions annually. The Higher Education Act of 1965, as amended, requires that institutions that participate in federal student aid programs report data on enrollments, program completions, graduation rates, faculty and staff, finances, institutional prices, and student financial aid. Fall data is made available to students and parents on the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) website and West Liberty’s most recent update is found in the College Navigator. Data is available to researchers and others on the IPEDS Data Center website where statistics and trends for West Liberty, West Liberty’s peer institutions, and other institutions can be compared.
The completion of all IPEDS surveys in a timely and accurate manner is mandatory for all institutions that participate in or are applicants for participation in any federal financial assistance program authorized by Title IV of the Higher Education Act of 1965, as amended. Submitting IPEDS data accurately and on time is required in the institution’s Program Participation Agreement for Title IV federal student financial aid programs with the U.S. Department of Education. In this way, West Liberty University will avoid fines and other possible penalties for noncompliance with IPEDS reporting requirements.IPEDS reports are completed annually according to Federal Government reporting timelines.
