How we count degrees

Degree History
The data in the degree history tables are reported from annual snapshots taken each fall. All degrees granted in the annual period from July 1 through June 30 or cleared late during that period from previous years are counted. The totals match Federal IPEDS reporting.

Degree by Program
The data in these tables are refreshed each fall to count the number of degrees granted between July 1 and June 30 each year. In these data, late clearing degrees from previous years are categorized by the year the degree was granted, the date that appears on the student’s diploma. Therefore past years’ data may change when the tables are updated. Double majors are double counted to accurately display departmental activity.

Degrees Granted, 2006-07
The data in these graphs match Federal IPEDS reporting. Degrees are classified by CIP code, with double majors classified by first major
