This document, the Department of Education's standard educational program classification system for secondary and postsecondary schools, supersedes all previous editions. The manual is divided into seven chapters, each of which contains, in numerical order, the complete list of currently active Classification of Instructional Programs (CIP) 6-digit codes pertaining to the topic of that chapter, arranged in 4-digit and 2-digit series. Chapters are organized as follows: chapter 1, academic and occupationally specific instructional programs; chapter 2, comprehensive homemaking skills programs; chapter 3, technology education programs offered in middle and secondary schools; chapter 4, Reserve Officer Training Corps programs; chapter 5, personal improvement and leisure-time activity programs; chapter 6, dental, medical, and veterinary residency programs; and chapter 7 instructional programs leading to diplomas and certificates awarded at the secondary educational level only. Seven appendixes provide the following materials: a chart linking 1990 codes to 1985 codes; a crosswalk of 1985 codes; all 1985 codes deleted in the 1990 list; all programs added to the 1990 list; an alphabetical listing of all 1990 codes; a glossary of CIP terms, and a list of CIP review participants and their affiliations.
