Subject: 1996/97 Fee Waiver Information/IPEDS
The Chancellor's Office Accounting
Department prepares the finance survey portion of the annual Integrated
Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS) report on behalf of
most campuses. In addition to reporting the amount of all tuition
and fees assessed, we are instructed to include the amount of
any fee waivers. For fiscal year 1996/97, the data used to prepare
the survey is extracted from the Chancellor's Office consolidated
database which does not include fee waiver information.
The integrity of the data included
in the IPEDS report is significant as it is used to produce various
federal and state reports and publications. IPEDS data is also
used as a research tool by private and public organizations.
In an effort to improve upon the
accuracy of the IPEDS report, we need each campus to provide us
with the amount of their FY 96/97 fee waivers. For our reporting
requirements, please categorize the fee waiver by: (1) the CSU
fund name and (2) the functional area in which the
benefit was incurred.
Please forward the information to
Sedong John, Financial Data Coordinator in the Accounting Department
no later than Monday, November 24, 1997. Questions regarding
this data request should be directed to Sedong John at (562) 985-2889
or via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
