Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS) Benchmarking Data
Institutions of higher education that receive federally funded financial aid are required to submit data to the federal government's National Center for Educational Statistics on a regular basis. Data that is submitted includes enrollment, financial aid, finance, human resources, and graduation rates/completions. This data is made available for the public and can be utilized by institutions to compare themselves on a number of standard measures. Institutional benchmarking using finance, financial aid, and admissions data is presented in the following pages. Comparisons include the official peer group of Saint Mary's College and our Competitors as determined by cross admissions data from the Survey of Admitted Students.
