Reporting Doctoral Degrees: Researchers or Practitioners Edward L Delaney, Ph.D.
First Professional Degree Policy Review • The purpose is to develop recommendations for improving the efficiency and effectiveness of the collection and use of IPEDS data on awards, particularly first-professional degrees • The current categories of data collection were developed in the late 1950's, and considerable change has occurred in the structure of U.S. occupations. The current project seeks ways in which the current IPEDS award categories should be modified, expanded, contracted, or eliminated.
Practical Objective • Ease the volume of the major types of mail received by NCES regarding First Professional Degrees: • “We want our program on the list!” • Upset by what appears to be an eclectic collection of programs • Question the rationale for the category
First Professional Degree Definition [From the 2000 Classification of Instructional Programs] An award that requires postsecondary study of the basic body of knowledge and skills required to function as an entry-level professional in certain fields specified for reporting purposes by the U.S. Department of Education.

First Professional Degree Definition • completion of the program provides the academic prerequisites necessary for licensure in a recognized profession; • requires at least 2 years of college-level study prior to entering the program; and • the degree is awarded after a period of study such that the total registered time to the degree, including both pre-professional and professional study, equals at least 6 full-time equivalent academic years.
CIP code validation • All CIP codes are verified against the 1990 or 2000 version of the Classification of Instructional Programs manual, depending on which the user has selected. • CIP codes used to report first-professional degrees and certificates (award levels 10) are checked against the list of approved FPD programs:
