Broyles, Susan G.; Fernandez, Rosa M.
This directory lists all postsecondary institutions in the United States and its outlying areas known to exist as of April 1995. Data were obtained from the 1994-95 Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS) "Institutional Characteristics" survey. Volume 1 provides listings for 2,819 4-year and 2,657 2-but-less-than-4-year schools, while Volume 2 provides listings for 4,927 less-than-2-year schools. Introductory tables in each volume provide summary information. Institutions are listed alphabetically by state and include information on address and telephone number, type of control, highest degree offered, enrollment, tuition, room and board, programs, and accreditation. Both volumes contain two appendixes listing institutional changes (including additions, deletions, no longer accredited, and name changes) for 1992-93, 1993-94, and 1994-95 and a listing of accrediting bodies recognized by the Secretary of the U.S. Department of Education.
