Comprehensive course catalog
Comprehensive Course Catalog

  • New York State’s comprehensive course code catalog will be adopted from the NCES SCED identifiers.

  • SED intends to make a “quick reference guide” subset available to assist in reporting.

  • LEAs would not be required to adopt the State codes, but they will have to map to the codes for reporting purposes in the 2011-12 school year.


Many states have already adopted nces sced codes

NCES SCED

Since state codes were based on NCES SCED course codes, where can I see the NCES SCED documents?

The NCES SCED for secondary can be found here:

The NCES SCED for prior-to-secondary can be found here:
