Institutional Characteristics 2014-15
Institution: Colorado School of Mines (126775)
User ID: P1267751
Overview
Institutional Characteristics Overview
Welcome to the Institutional Characteristics (IC) component. This component collects important information about your
institution's mission, student services, and student charges.
Much of the data reported on IC appear on College Navigator, which is updated once after IC data has been finally
reviewed. Thus, errors may stay on College Navigator for a full year.
Additionally, the cost of attendance data are used to calculate the net price of attendance in the Student Financial Aid
component. This has important implications for what students see about your institution, and also for the College
Affordability and Transparency Center's lists. Revisions or changes to costs can ONLY be made in the Student
Financial Aid component and not in the prior year revision system.
Remember, it is the responsibility of the keyholder to submit accurate data about the institution. Please contact the
IPEDS Help Desk for clarifications to make sure that you are reporting correctly.
Changes to This Year's IC Component:


All of the Part B Admissions questions have been moved to the new Admissions (ADM)
component. A screening question on IC-Header will determine if your institution is required to
complete ADM in the Winter Collection.

Estimated enrollment numbers were part of the admissions questions in IC, but was not moved
to the new ADM component. Starting this year, IPEDS will no longer collect estimated
enrollment numbers.

A new question on the services and programs for military servicemembers and veterans has
been added and placed in Part B of IC, which used to have the admissions questions.


Common Errors

Quality control reviews of past IC data indicate frequently made errors. Please review the common errors below to
ensure accurate reporting. Additional common errors or tips can be found in the New Keyholder Handbook under
Resources.


Question 2 should only be marked 'YES' if your institution is EXCLUSIVELY distance education. Do not mark
'YES' if your courses/programs are also available in person.

Do not try to outsmart fatal errors; this is falsifying data. Contact the Help Desk to override, or fix, the data.

Make sure you understand ALL definitions before responding to questions. For example, make sure that you
are reporting for an 'ACADEMIC YEAR' or 'PROGRAM' as defined by IPEDS.

If you make any exceptions to this rule, and have even one first-time, full-time student living off-campus, please answer
