This document presents findings from the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS) fall 2003 data collection, which includes two survey components: Institutional Characteristics for the 2003-04 academic year and Completions covering the period July 1, 2002, through June 30, 2003. This data was collected through the IPEDS web-based data collection system. The Institutional Characteristics component of IPEDS collects and maintains information used to classify postsecondary institutions based on a variety of characteristics. Data on sector, level, control, and affiliation allow classification within general categories. In addition, this component collects data on tuition and fees and room and board charges. The completions component collects data annually on recognized degree completions in postsecondary education programs by level and on other formal awards by length of program. Data were collected by race/ethnicity and gender of recipient and by field of study. In addition, completions data on the number of students with multiples majors were collected by field of study, degree level, race/ethnicity, and gender from those schools that award degrees with multiple majors. The following are appended: (1) Survey of Methodology; and (2) Glossary of IPEDS Terms. (Contains 13 tables & 4 figures.)
