1 Everything You Always Wanted to Know About CIP Codes Classification of Instructional Programs Codes

2  CIP codes permeate almost everything IMA does. They are used in our federal and state reporting; we track degrees, facilities, departments, majors, faculty, etc. by CIP codes.  In addition, IMA needs to be able to convey to others on campus what the codes are and how they are used. 8/12/2010

3  A taxonomic coding scheme of instructional programs that supports the accurate tracking and reporting of fields of study and program completions activity. 8/12/2010

4  The CIP is not intended to be a regulatory device. CIP codes and their associated programs are standard statistical coding tools that reflect current practice, not a prescriptive list of officially recognized or permitted programs.  CIP codes, for the most part, are not intended to correspond exclusively to any specific degree or program level. 8/12/2010

5  Federally: Primarily used by postsecondary institutions when submitting the Completions Component of IPEDS (Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System – federal collection of data)  Institutionally: To track degrees, faculty, courses, etc. 8/12/2010

6  1979-80: As part of its program to provide assistance to the education community, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) awarded a contract to the National Center for Higher Education Management Systems (NCHEMS) to develop a classification of instructional programs and to provide terms and definitions for describing instructional programs for all of education.  1985 Edition: 1st revision  1990 Edition: 2nd revision, distributed summer 1992  2000 Edition: 3rd revision, distributed May 2002  2010 Edition: 4th revision, for use in fall 2010 8/12/2010

7  The CIP taxonomy is organized on three levels of codes and programs: 1) a 2-digit Series, representing the most general groupings of related programs 2) a 4-digit Series, representing intermediate groupings of programs that have comparable content and objectives 3) a 6-digit program level, representing the specific instructional programs 8/12/2010

9  Title: Computational and Applied Mathematics.  Definition: A program that focuses on the application of a broad range of mathematical and computational methods to modeling, analysis, algorithm development, and simulation for the solution of complex scientific and engineering problems. Includes instruction in numerical analysis, discrete mathematics, operations research, optimization, differential equations, statistics, scientific computation, and applications to specific scientific and industrial topics.  See also: 27.0301) Applied Mathematics., 27.0303) Computational Mathematics.27.0301) Applied Mathematics.27.0303) Computational Mathematics. 8/12/2010

24 Table location Table typeTable name 0404010006000 Digits 1-6 Federal CIP code Digits 7-8 Texas CIP code Digits 9 -10 Texas funding code Digits 11-13 UT Austin codes (not reported to Feds or state) The “9” is the school code (Architecture), the “2” means it is a master’s level degree, the name is “Sustainable Design” and the “898” is the degree code M.S.S.D. Master of Science in Sustainable Design

25  IPEDS Completions – Fall 2010 > Use the 2010 CIP for reporting on completions during the 2009-2010 academic year  Fall Enrollment – Spring 2011 > Use the 2010 CIP for reporting on enrollment in Fall 2010 8/12/2010

26  Re-organized: Series 23 (4-digit level) – English, Literature, Rhetoric & Composition Series 42 (4-digit level) – Psychology (general), Research & Experimental Psych, and Clinical, Counseling & Applied Psych Series 50.10 – Arts, Entertainment & Media Management Series 51.16 – Split into 51.38 Registered Nursing and 51.39 Practical Nursing 8/12/2010
