About CIP Codes
Classification of Instructional Programs Codes
 CIP
codes permeate almost everything
IMA does. They are used in our federal
and state reporting; we track degrees,
facilities, departments, majors, faculty, etc.
by CIP codes.
 In addition, IMA needs to be able to
convey to others on campus what the
codes are and how they are used.

A
taxonomic coding scheme of
instructional programs that supports
the accurate tracking and reporting
of fields of study and program
completions activity.
8/12/2010
 The
CIP is not intended to be a
regulatory device. CIP codes and their
associated programs are standard
statistical coding tools that reflect current
practice, not a prescriptive list of
officially recognized or permitted
programs.
 CIP codes, for the most part, are not
intended to correspond exclusively to
any specific degree or program level.

 Federally: Primarily
used by
postsecondary institutions when
submitting the Completions Component of
IPEDS (Integrated Postsecondary
Education Data System – federal collection
of data)
 Institutionally: To track degrees, faculty,
courses, etc.


1979-80: As part of its program to provide assistance to the
education community, the National Center for Education
Statistics (NCES) awarded a contract to the National Center for
Higher Education Management Systems (NCHEMS) to develop
a classification of instructional programs and to provide terms
and definitions for describing instructional programs for all of
education.

 The
CIP taxonomy is organized on three
levels of codes and programs:
1) a 2-digit Series, representing the most
general groupings of related
programs
2) a 4-digit Series, representing
intermediate groupings of programs that
have comparable content and objectives
3) a 6-digit program level, representing the
specific instructional programs
