IPEDs Main Page

The IPEDS reporting system consists of four reports.  The only report forwarded to IPEDS is the Summary report B40.  All of the remaining reports are used at your campus for verifying and correcting the data.


These reports are available through CIRS.  In CIRS they are referred to as Compendium Reports.


The steps for adjusting the information on the CIRS IPEDS Online system (IPOS) are as follows:

1.   Print IPEDS compendium reports B40-B43, cycle is 0910.  Refer to Batch Print for information on accessing and printing reports.  An alternate report is available for the B41 report.  C41 is sorted by name instead of SSN.  Refer to B41 for field definitions.
