This report presents findings from the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS) spring 2001 data collection, which included enrollment data for fall 2000, financial statistics for fiscal year 2000, and student financial aid data for academic year 1999-2000. The data were collected through the IPEDS Web-based data collection system. IPEDS collects data from about 9,400 postsecondary institutions in the United States. Participation in the IPEDS Spring 2001 data collection was a requirement for the approximately 6,600 institutions that participated in Title IV federal student financial aid programs such as Pell Grants or Stafford Loans during the 2000-2001 academic year. Data show that in fall 2000, 15.9 million students were enrolled in the 6,600 Title IV postsecondary institutions, and of these, 86.3 were enrolled in undergraduate programs. The majority, 59.5% were enrolled full time, while 40.5% were enrolled part time. About 56.4% of postsecondary students in these institutions were women, and 63.3% were White, non-Hispanic students. Data are provided on the characteristics of students at degree-granting and nondegree-granting institutions and on the residence and migration of first-time, degree/certificate-seeking students.
