  • Institution is classified as ‘public’ or ‘private not-for-profit’
  • Institution is classified as ‘Four or more years’ or ‘At least two but less than four years’
  • Institution awarded computing degrees – broadly defined as any area of studies falling under the CIP code of ‘11) Computer and Information Sciences and Support Services’
  • Institution awarded computing degrees at the Associate’s, Bachelor’s, Master’s, and/or Doctoral level(s)
