Publicly Funded Post Secondary Enrolments - Program Completions in Credential Programs by Field of Study


The Program Completion values are related to instances where students complete an approved credential program (Certificates, Diplomas, and Degrees). This dataset provides the breakdown of the program completions in Alberta's Publicly funded post-secondary system by Field of Study. Field of study is reported using CIP 2011 Code values assigned to each program/specialization. CIP refers to the "Classification of Institutional Programs" and is a code used to classify like programs based on the instructional content of the program/specializations. This dataset will show the program completions in certificate, diploma, and degree programs by each 2 digit CIP code by Academic Year.

Usage Considerations

Banff Centre does not offer Certificate, Degree or Diploma programs. As a result, no data for Banff Centre is listed. Program Completions include Completions in Certificate, Degree and Diploma programs only. As the Journeyman Program Type is a Certificate credential, students completing their final instructional portion in their apprenticeship program are included in the values above. In 2013-14, Innovation and Advanced Education introduced a new reporting application. This resulted in some data conversions and updated full-time/part-time calculations. As a result of these changes, the data in the table may not align with previous data pulls. Academic years are related to each individual institution, and generally run from May through April or July through June. The data is submitted at the end of each academic year, and then requires a rigorous review and sign off, meaning there is a time lag of approximately one year before data is updated. Institutional Related Notes: University of Alberta assumed responsibility for Augustana University College on July 1, 2004. For comparison purposes, all values in this data set have been included in the university count. In September 2009 the Lieutenant Governor in Council changed the name of Grant MacEwan College and Mount Royal College to Grant MacEwan University and Mount Royal University. All values in this data set have been listed with the current name. On May 3, 2007, Alliance University College and Canadian Nazarene University College merged to become Ambrose University College. All values in this data set have been listed with the current name. On June 30, 2009, Taylor University College and Seminary became Taylor College and Seminary and ceased offering undergraduate academic baccalaureate programs, meaning no enrolments will be reported as of 2009-10.
