The Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS) collects institution-level data from postsecondary institutions in the United States (50 states and the District of Columbia) and other U.S. jurisdictions (see appendix A for a list of other U.S. jurisdictions). This First Look presents findings from the provisional data of the IPEDS winter 2013-14 data collection, which included three survey components: (1) Graduation Rates (GR); (2) Graduation Rates 200 (GR200); and (3) Student Financial Aid (SFA). GR and GR200 present graduation rates for selected cohorts within 100, 150, and 200 percent of normal program completion time. SFA collects the number of undergraduate students awarded aid as well as the amount of the aid awarded to those students. Data for these components were collected through the IPEDS web-based data collection system. Detailed information about the study methodology can be found at This First Look using IPEDS provisional data provides users with an opportunity to access fully reviewed, edited, and imputed IPEDS data. Final data, including revisions to the provisional data submitted by institutions after the close of data collection, will be available during the next collection year (2014-15). The purpose of this report is to introduce new data through the presentation of tables containing descriptive information. Selected findings have been chosen to demonstrate the range of information available when using the IPEDS data rather than to discuss all of the observed differences, and they are not meant to emphasize any particular issue. The following are appended: (1) Data Collection Procedures; and (2) Glossary of IPEDS Terms.
