Higher Education Datasets

Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDs) includes information from every college, university, and technical and vocational institution that participates in the federal student financial aid programs. Datasets include year-over-year enrollments, program completions, graduation rates, faculty and staff, finances, institutional prices, and student financial aid.

Examples of this data in action are:

Alltuition makes college more affordable by matching prospective students with the grants, scholarships, and loans they qualify for based on their demographic data.

Simple Tuition uses higher education data to match students with the most affordable college loans and repayment options.

Open Badges

Open Badges is an innovative infrastructure that allows colleges and industry organizations to award micro-credentials (badges) to students who demonstrate proficiency in specific competencies. A student may earn a particular competency badge by demonstrating prior experience, or by participating in courses or informal learning experiences. Because the technology behind the badges is open, a learner can collect badges from any number of different organizations and showcase them in one single place.
