Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS)

IPEDS, established as the core postsecondary education data collection program for NCES, is designed to encompass all postsecondary institutions and educational organizations. The IPEDS system is built around a series of interrelated surveys, collecting data from all primary providers of postsecondary education, in such areas as enrollments, program completions, faculty, staff, and finances.

IPEDS Peer Analysis System and Self-guided Tutorials enables a user to easily compare a LinchPin institution of the user’s choosing to a group of peer institutions, by generating reports using selected IPEDS variables of interest.

IPEDS College Opportunities On-line (COOL) presents data on institution prices, financial aid, enrollment, and type of programs that are offered by the institution. IPEDS COOL is designed to help college students, future students, and their parents understand the differences between colleges and how much it costs to attend college.

National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) NCES is the primary federal entity for collecting and analyzing education-related data in the U.S. and beyond.

See NCES Annual Reports, which brings together data from several NCES sources, including The Condition of Education, The Digest of Education Statistics, and Projections of Education Statistics (searchable by subject and title).

SSU's Office of the Provost, Institutional Research provides information on SSU academic planning, student right to know, and student demographics.

UC Davis Transfer database

UC Davis provides information on the academic outcomes of transfer students from specific community colleges, including SRJC. This link is a searchable database into which you can enter the name of the sending institution. All figures are based on students transferring to UC Davis since Fall Quarter 1990.

The site includes a caveat that small group totals - less than 30 students - should be treated like anecdotes - useful but not very reliable as a group composite figure. Most of the SRJC transfers to UC Davis total less than 30 per major since data collection began, but a few majors exceed that number: Economics, Psychology and International Relations.

UC Office of the President

This site includes information on research and evaluation on admissions and educational outreach as well as research papers and background documents on topics covering standardized testing, the UC admissions process and its educational outreach efforts.

This site's Information Digest provides data on UC undergraduate student admissions and enrollment as well as information concerning the retention, graduation, and time-to-degree of UC undergraduates. The Digest began in 1998.
