Overview
Admissions Overview
Welcome to the IPEDS Admissions (ADM) survey component. The primary purpose of ADM is to collect basic

information about the undergraduate selection process for entering first-time, degree/certificate-seeking students. This
includes information about admissions considerations, admissions yields, and SAT and ACT test scores (if test scores
are required for admission). ADM will be collected only from institutions that do not have an open admissions policy for
entering first-time students.


Recent changes

The items in ADM were moved from the Institutional Characteristics component. There will be no change to the data

items collected, only to the collection period in which the data are submitted.
In previous collections, institutions selected from two reporting period options. Admissions data from the prior year
could be provided if current year data were not available at the time of reporting. Beginning with the current Winter
2014-15 collection, all institutions must use the most recent Fall reporting period.


Data Reporting Reminders

•ADM covers data for the most recent Fall period.

•ADM is only applicable to first-time entering students; do not include other students in the number of
applicants, number of admits, and number (of admitted) that enrolled. Only include levels (full-time,
part-time) that you indicated were offered in the IC Header. If you made an error in the IC Header,
please call the IPEDS Help Desk.

Summary
Admissions Component Summary
IPEDS collects important information regarding your institution. All data reported in IPEDS
survey components become available in the IPEDS Data Center and appear as aggregated data
in various Department of Education reports. Additionally, some of the reported data appears
specifically for your institution through the College Navigator website and is included in your
