Terms That Should Mean More to Admissions Officers: IPEDS, Clearinghouse and Common Data Set

LIVE FREE Webinar date: April 25, 2013
Time: 2:00PM - 3:00PM ET


Admissions Officers: It's time to embrace your inner Registrar and jump on the reporting ship before it sets sail. If you're not involved with reporting on your campus, it is time for that to change (if for no other reason than to make sure your numbers are reported accurately). Are you aware that admissions data plays a critical role in many state and federal reports? Learn about the basics of several standard federal reports, what admissions data is needed, and how that data is used in those reports.

Who Should Attend?

This webinar is primarily for admissions officers and individuals that deal with institutional research and reporting.
