Degrees Awarded

CDS Definition:
From July 1 to June 30. For each of the following discipline areas, provide the percentage of diplomas/certificates, associate, and bachelor’s degrees awarded. To determine the percentage, use majors, not headcount (e.g., students with one degree but a double major will be represented twice). Calculate the percentage from your institution’s IPEDS Completions by using the sum of 1st and 2nd majors for each CIP code as the numerator and the sum of the Grand Total by 1st Majors and the Grand Total by 2nd major as the denominator. If you prefer, you can compute the percentages using 1st majors only.
IPEDS Definition:
An award conferred by a college, university, or other postsecondary education institution as official recognition for the successful completion of a program of studies.
THECB Definition:
The credential granted a student for successful completion of a set curriculum such as a degree or certificate. (CBM009)
