Search by institution name:
Or Search by Institution IPEDS Unit ID:
Find an institution by first letter of institution name.
The search function retrieves all entries whose names contain the exact text entered in
the box, including spaces and punctuation. Search is not case-sensitive.
Institution names in the database are exactly as they appear in the IPEDS database. As
a result, many widely-used short forms (e.g., UCLA, UVA) will not work as search text.
Tips for efficient searching
Entering a partial name is usually the best strategy. If your search does not retrieve
any entries or fails to retrieve the one you want, try a single distinctive word or word
fragment from the name.
Example: searching on "berkel" will retrieve all entries containing the word "Berkeley"
anywhere in the name.
Avoid words that may or may not be abbreviated (e.g., Fort, Mount, Saint) and words
that may or may not include apostrophes. Similarly, avoid portions of a name that may
Examples: search for "mary" rather than "mary's"; search for "ann arbor" rather than
"university of michigan, ann arbor".
Special considerations: abbreviations and special characters
As noted above, commonly-abbreviated words like Fort, Mount, and Saint may appear as
complete words in some names, but as abbreviations in others.
Names differ in their use of punctuation and special characters such as hyphens,
commas, apostrophes, and ampersands, so it is best to avoid that part of the name.
