Degrees -- Select Primary Aggregation

The Commission's Custom Data Data Reports provide the number of students receiving degrees or certificates in the state, in a region or county, in a particular segment (system) or in a particular institution for a single year or pre-defined 5 and 10 year spans. Breakdown by ethnicity is available for all reports and gender is available in most cases. Most of the reports provide additional aggregation (grouping) as discussed in the descriptions below.

Statewide numbers for the most recent year can be generated by leaving all options set to their default value and generating the report.

Important Notes Important Notes:

The year in the data refers to different time frames depending on the data:

  • Unless otherwise specified, all enrollment, full-time equivalent enrollment, and transfer numbers are Fall-term data.
  • For enrollment, full-time equivalent enrollment, and Fall-term transfer numbers, the data is for the Fall term of the year shown. (e.g. 2000 refers to Fall 2000 data)
  • For full-year transfer numbers, the data is for the academic year ending in the year shown. (e.g. 2000 refers to Academic Year 1999-2000 data)
  • For high school graduation, K-12 enrollment, and degree and completion numbers, the data is for the academic year ending in the year shown. (e.g. 2000 refers to Academic Year 1999-2000 data)

Program information is available from a general category (e.g. Physical Sciences) to a specific category (Pharmaceutical Chemistry).

Examples:
• Number of Engineering degrees awarded by California State University in 2000.
• Number of Medical degrees awarded by UC Davis over the past 15 years.

 Source Community College and Discipline / Instructional Program

 Source Institution to Public Institutions

• Students that transferred from a community college
• Students that graduated from a particular high school
Additional aggregations include Degree Type and the Source Institution School Type. Change the School Type to reflect the source institutions desired (e.g. Community College Campus). Use the High School Origin Report below if the source institution is not a community college. IMPORTANT NOTE: Analysis indicates selecting source institutions other than community colleges may not produce accurate information.

Examples:
• Number of degrees awarded to students UC Irvine who transferred from Fullerton College.
• State-wide number of degrees awarded to students who transferred from Cabrillo College.

 High School Origin to California State University and University of California
Use this report to find the number of students that received a degree in PUBLIC higher education from a particular high school. Additional aggregations include Degree Type and the Source Institution School Type. Change the School Type to reflect the source institutions desired (e.g. Public High Schools). Use the Source Institution Report above if the source institution is a community college.

Examples:
• Total degrees awarded to students from high schools in San Diego County in 1998.
• Number of Masters Degrees awarded to students .

 Disability
This report displays the number of degrees awarded to students with a disability at a PUBLIC college or university. Additional aggregation by Disability and Degree Type (e.g. Associate, Bachelor, etc.), and Discipline (program) are provided. IMPORTANT NOTE: Starting in 2005, CSU stopped reporting the type of disability. The Commission has been able to insert some of this data by matching with the enrollment data. The matching is not perfect and some data is like missing. As more enrollment data is gathered, data matching for later years will be better.

Examples:
• Relative degrees awarded to students with various disabilities state-wide.
• The number of degrees awarded to visually impaired students at UC Davis in 2003.
